the prominence of issues such as global
climate changes, the use of pesticides,
fertilizers and genetic engineering is causing
people to become more concerned with food
CSA farms offer fresh, high
quality vegetables (usually certified organic)
with some farmers offering eggs, poultry,
meat, herbs and honey. Each farm is different,
but all offer fresher, healthier alternatives
to produce picked too early and shipped
for hundreds, even thousands of miles before
making it to your plate. Taste the difference!
Buy from your local CSA farm.
