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!!  🙂
