One of my New Year's resolutions this year was to sign us up for a CSA (Community Supported agriculture). You might be wondering what that means, a CSA provides a direct relationship between consumers and the farm. Essentially you buy a "share" of the farm. Every week we will pick up two boxes one for vegetables and one for fruit. The fruit season is shorter, and is not meant to be a local share. The farm will obtain fruit from around the country at it's peak.
As you know, we are really into food around here. We are super excited to be a part of this and can't wait to get our first box, which will come in May! The kids can't wait to visit the farm. We decided to go with Harmony Valley Farms, because we thought it was a good fit for us. I liked that it was organic and that they had the fruit option as well. They provide a wide variety of vegetables, not just cucumbers and tomatoes. If you are interested about finding about more, check out their site.
This site called Local Harvest also has a lot of information about CSA, farmer's markets, and more. Have fun!
