Our 5 favorite REASONS TO JOIN A CSA!
REASON #1: HEALTH
We all know it's all about eating your vegetables! But, not all vegetables are created equal. Produce grown in nutrient rich soil without chemical inputs are not only healthier for you, but way better for the environment. A double win. Sign up for your CSA share for your health and the health of the planet!
REASON # 2 : VALUE
By paying your farmer directly to grow food for you, you're cutting out the cost of middlemen like distributors and retailers. This means more of your purchase dollars go directly to supporting your local farmer. Plus, when you buy local you're also avoiding the extra monetary and environmental cost of transportation. Better for the earth, better for your farmer.
REASON #3: QUALITY
That fresh picked strawberry, that tomato off the vine, the head of lettuce that was in the field earlier thatday and is still crisp and full of life! Fresh food tastes better! Besides being fresh, what makes our veggies even more flavorful is that they're grown without chemical fertilizers in nutrient dense soils! You can taste and feel the difference when you eat local, organic food. When you join a CSA, your taste buds and body will thank you for it!
REASON #4: CONNECTIONS
CSAs help you connect more deeply with the earth and the seasons. Through building a relationship with your farmer, you learn more about the process of growing food. Through eating what's ready to harvest, you connect to the seasons and natural rhythms of the earth. Your food being grown closer home inevitably and inextricably ties you the nature that surrounds you.
REASON #5: COMMUNITY!
Our final and favorite reason of why you should join a CSA! Becoming a member of a CSA makes you a part of supporting the local food system and is a great way to put your dollars to action in creating positive environmental and social change. When you know where your food comes from and directly support your grower, you become woven into the fabric of your local community. Your CSA dollars keep your farmer growing and therefore able to offer healthy food to others in your area. Whether at pick up or at farm events, CSA is also just a really fun way to meet other people who are interested in local, healthy food and care about the planet just as much as you do! At our farm, we love to share our love of the earth and its bounties and the sense of place that makes everyone feel a deep sense of nourishment and belonging.
