A few years ago it was very difficult to find local food, however, today joining a CSA is simpler than at any other time.
What Is a Community Supported AgricultureA CSA is an alternate method for getting fresh and seasonal food items on your table. Rather than purchasing your grocery grown from the grounds of a merchant or agent, a CSA is a perfectly managed gathering of clients and farmers who arrange to offer shares of the agriculturists' products to the clients, who thus sponsor the gardeners, their operations and regularly their families. Some CSA's send straightforwardly to client homes; however, others permit you to get your share at an adjacent gathering point and others are available to pick up right from the farm gate.
When you join a CSA, you agree to receive and accept fresh organic products, vegetables, eggs and meat from the farmers you will be supporting. The organizers will prepare your boxes and come either week after week or month to month. It all depends upon the calendar of the CSA. Moreover, some CSAs provide products year-round, including fall and winter food items or home-made jams and other products in the winter months. Numerous CSA's permit you to join per-season so you pay for the regular products you are interested in.
