Households buying direct from local farms!
An excellent way to increase your consumption of local foods is to join a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Participants in CSAs pay farmers at the beginning of the season or in regular installments and receive a weekly box of fresh produce (or even eggs, dairy products, or meat) throughout the growing season. By participating in a CSA, you help farmers defray the high capital costs that occur in the spring. Many CSA farms provide newsletters and recipes for their members and some hold farm events or even encourage members to help out on the farm. Several listed below offer products year round.
