The CSA Update

Posted on

The warm weather makes us all think it’s spring. And with spring, our thoughts turn to fresh vegetables and fruit. Here in the heart of Maryland we have so many options for Community Supported Agriculture and they are evolving to make them more adaptable for our needs.

I wrote about Breezy Willow the other day. Besides them, there are lots of options around here. Love Dove Farm. Gorman Farm. Clark’s Farm. One Straw Farm. TLV Tree Farm. Zahradka Farm. All fairly local.

For us, we still like our Amish option, with all the exotic vegetables. We know it isn’t for everyone, but we like it. I still can buy from the local farms at the markets all summer and fall.

Happily, the CSAs around here are allowing you to choose options. For meat. For eggs. If you haven’t considered buying locally and helping a farm get money early in the year, keeping them from having to borrow money early in the season maybe you should check out the options and help them stay healthy. If you don’t live around here, you can check out Local Harvest and find one near you.

You too can get wholesome food, fresh from the fields, and know the farmers who grow it.
