Now's the time to join a CSA

Tannis Kowalchuck of Willow Wisp Organic Farm with her fantastic cut flowers.

Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is an increasingly popular way to grow your connection with a farm in your community. Members of a CSA receive a regular, often weekly, box of vegetables after purchasing a share in the farm each spring. Many farms offer optional add-on shares of local products including fruit, flowers and eggs. Additional contact information and details on each unique share programs are in links included below.
