Local growers ready for season’s CSA programs

Mar 2nd, 2020 | Category: Community, Farms, Features

Updated Saturday, March 21, 2020

Local farmers offering Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs are busy preparing for the upcoming season. Most CSA options provide weekly boxes, allowing residents or businesses to subscribe in the early spring for a full season’s worth of produce. The content of the boxes differ by farm, however generally include vegetables and fruits grown on site (or list off-site products). Some also offer extra choices and specialty add-ons such as eggs, cheese, meat, bread, herbs and more.
