Community-supported agriculture (CSA)
It's good for farmers and it's good for you!
Community-supported agriculture is a mutually supportive relationship between local farmers, growers, and community members. CSAs help to create an economically stable farm operation in which members are guaranteed a reliable market for a diverse selection of crops.
How does Summer's Bounty CSA work?
Subscribers pay a fee in advance and then receive fruits and vegetables weekly over an eight-week period. The 2017 Summer's Bounty program will bring fresh produce to community members between the weeks of June 12th and July 31st.
Each box of produce comes with a newsletter complete with simple-to-prepare recipes to go along with the fresh produce in that week's share.
