For those of you that are not familiar with CSA's here is a copy of a previous post~
Wednesday's are my pick up day for CSA (community supported agriculture). If you are not familiar with them..here is a website to learn about them.. http://www.localharvest.org/csa/ Each week I get a share of my local farmer's crop that feeds a family of four that consumes a primarily plant based diet. Prior to the planting season I make arrangements to pre-pay for the seasons harvest, which is 26 weeks. I have been doing this for 5 years and we love the fresh variety of produce and we get to support our local farmer's. Our group has been working with our farmer for about 7 years and he uses only sustainable & organic farming methods..He is committed to not use any pesticides/insecticides and will allow the crop to fail rather than taint the fields.
Know your farmers...ask questions....get involved.
