CSA Go Guide 2018

compiled by Heather Quackenboss

In the quest to eat local, healthy foods, a “share” in a community supported agriculture (CSA) farm provides an easy path for that. Each week (or bi-weekly, depending on the share you purchase), your farmer will typically deliver seasonal vegetables, but CSA shares vary by farm and might include fruit, eggs, meat, or even coffee or cheese.

Here is a list of CSAs who serve our region to get your family started on the road to eating as fresh and healthy as you can get!
