In the spring, consider signing up for a CSA share. CSA is an arrangement between local farms and households. You pay a fee to the farm, which entitles you to a share of the farm’s harvest. Each week, or sometimes every other week, you pick up a box of fresh foods from the farm.
Your employer may offer a discount or reimbursement for CSA as part of a wellness program. Talk to your benefits manager for more information.
You can find farms offering CSA shares in any state at LocalHarvest. Learn more about CSAs by visiting the links below:
- FairShare CSA Coalition – Through education, outreach, community building and resource sharing, FairShare is working to raise the bar on quality and accessibility of CSA shares in our region.
- FRESH Food Connection – FRESH is a cooperatively organized group of Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms in southern Wisconsin.
