Community Supported Agriculture
By: Gerald Carter
Ultra-fresh, locally grown produce- By far the number one reason for participating in CSA. Farms give their members the very best of their produce and more. Unique varieties are often given to CSA members before others.
Learn about new vegetables and fruits- You never know what might show up in your box.
Saves time- A definite gain in convenience. Picking up a box simply takes less time that going to the farmers market or choosing, bagging, and paying for produce at the store.
Access to special buys- Farms often offer seasonal deals to their CSA members.
