Community Supported Agriculture (CSA or Farm Share)

 What is it?

A farm share, also called Community Supported Agriculture or CSA, is where you subscribe to a local farm membership.  Prior to the start of the growing season you purchase a “share” of the expected vegetable and/or fruit crop as well as a possible variety of other food items such as farm fresh eggs, artisan breads, meats, etc.

  How am I involved?

In my case, my daughter and I go to the actual farm, (KYV Farm), every other Thursday to select my specified number of veggies separated in bins, visit the chickens and talk to the actual farmers growing the food we eat who we now consider to be friends. Some additional alternatives that may be offered by the farm are to pick up pre-selected boxes of vegetables/food items dropped off at specified places throughout the community that may be more convenient for you than going to the actual farm.  Additionally, some farms, such as KYV, offer home drop-off for your convenience.

I write recipes for CSA/Farm Share produce and help plan events such as Farm-to-Table dinners, yoga workshops, Know Your Veggies workshops, member pot lucks and you-pick opportunities to pick your own produce. 

For all my posts in regards to my farm share simply enter “CSA” in the search box on the home screen.  You will find photos, recipes and information!
