This week we are excited to begin our spring Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) season! Now, more than ever before, we are proud to provide this ‘Farm to Table’ service to our local families. Given all of the social distancing restrictions, CSA is a great way to get healthy foods without having to shop!
It is interesting to me that ‘Farm to Table’ has become a buzz phrase that has been used in the past few years as a supposed “new way” of providing freshness to consumers. Through the CSA program, we have been ‘Farm to Table’ providers for 14 years! This is a win-win for us and our customers. Farmers and families work together to support local food sources, and customers benefit by having a kitchen stocked weekly with fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables grown by a local family. It is like Christmas every week, when CSA members open their boxes to see the fresh goodness inside! We have really enjoyed expanding the experience for our CSA members by providing a newsletter with recipes and educational tips the day before they get their boxes.
Until we can actually go out and enjoy the open air market experience once again, and I know we are all looking forward to that time, CSA is a great way to get farm freshness to our community. We want to make sure our community knows how thankful we are to have them as supporters. We couldn’t be in this partnership without you! For any of you who are interested in being a partner with us, there will be opportunities again to sign up in the summer and fall. Keep an eye on our website, stay safe and eat healthy!
