CSA Sign Up

By February 14, 2011 No Comments

It’s that time of year again!  Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms are accepting applications for those who would like to join their farm.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way for citizens to directly support farming and farmers in their communities.  Members purchase a share of a farm’s produce for the growing season.  These shareholders pay their money upfront and in return typically receive a weekly delivery of what is in season at their local farm.  The benefits of reduced transportation costs, having a varied local diet, and a direct positive impact on communities are some of the benefits of participating in this process.  Visit CSAUtah.org for more information.

CSAs are a wonderful way to get fresh, locally grown (local as in here in Utah) fruits and vegetables in season, many grown to organic standards although they may not organic certified.

For a listing of CSAs in Utah, please go to the CSA Listing page of my web site under “Health and Nutrition”.

Here’s to eating fresh!!  🙂
