What are your resolutions for 2021? If eating healthier and supporting local businesses are on your list, then joining a CSA program could be the perfect choice for you!
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is way to join a farm through a membership or subscription program. Members can sign up to receive weekly or bi-weekly boxes of fresh seasonal produce. Members enjoy fresh produce grown right here in our area, and farms often offer special prices or access to their CSA members. These programs are also a great way to support local farms and agricultural producers, which is really a win-win scenario!
When it comes to eating healthy or cooking more healthy meals, the convenience of regularly receiving fresh fruits and vegetables is a huge help. It can also encourage you to get out of your usual fruit and vegetable rotation and try something new. Because CSAs are only selling what they are growing at the moment, your produce will change with the season and always be as fresh as possible.
