CSA Season is Here!
With winter officially out the door, so are your excuses for not eating fresh and local.
Most CSA farms are now accepting enrollment for the 2012 season. CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, is a great way to eat fresh and local. Basically, you buy shares in a local farm and they split up their harvests between all of the shareholders. Most have different plans based on your family size. You can receive shares weekly, bi-weekly or even monthly. Some drop off at a centralized location, some let you come to the farm and pick it yourself. There are meat, vegetables and eggs to be had easily and for a reasonable price, so get off your ass and get some good food!
