Each CSA is unique and works a little differently – some include fruit, meat, and other locally-grown and processed products – others include pick your own crops, online ordering and feature on-farm events for the whole family. Stone Brothers Farm & Greenhouse, a CSA in their third year, provides members with hydroponically grown fresh vegetables during the colder months – including the earliest strawberries of the season! Side Hill Farmers, is taking orders online for their meat CSA and then delivering each month’s share to a restaurant near you!
Being part of a CSA is a fun-filled experience for the whole family. Children can learn about how healthy fruits and vegetables are grown and work with their parents to cook and taste new recipes. At Lucky Moon Farm CSA, you can even get a glimpse of how solar panels are helping farmers to reduce their energy costs.
