CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture programs)

Farm CSAs let you purchase shares of what is produced during the growing season. If a share seems like too much food for your household, you may want to consider splitting your share with a friend or neighbor. For information on joining a CSA, contact farms directly. Keep in mind that many CSAs fill up early in the year.
