Get in Touch With Your Food.
What’s a CSA? It stands for Community Supported Agriculture. More recently, CSA has been used to define farms that allow local consumers to pay for a monthly membership in the farm in exchange for a weekly box of seasonal local produce they can pick up directly from the farm. Hence you will see “CSA farms” as a category of growers now.
The biggest difference between our CSA memberships and our Farm to Home Delivery Service is that with our delivery you can choose what produce you want. With CSA memberships the farm chooses whatever is in season to fill your weekly box of produce with but it’s a little cheaper than home delivery.
The difference can be tasted with any farm fresh vegetable, but tomatoes are the most prominent example of what is wrong with our food supply today. We have gotten so far removed from what our food should be because we are so far removed from our local farmers. CSAs aim to bring communities back in touch with their food and tastebuds and offer nutrition over convenient replicas of what we should be eating. People are finally realizing that store produce is a waste of money and health, this is why farmer’s markets and CSAs are becoming so popular. Did you know, that in Europe, their version of farmer’s markets (what they call open air markets) have been the primary way of shopping for centuries because it’s the freshest, most nutritious, and they know the people who grow their food personally. Read our article on store bought tomatoes vs farm grown for a perfect example of the difference.
