If you do not know what a CSA is, it is an acronym for Community Supported Agriculture. You enter into an agreement with the farmer to pay for your produce upfront, thereby providing the farmer with much needed funds for the start of the season. As the weeks go by you share in the bounty of the harvest. You do also share in the risk. So if there is a drought or something, you could lose out a little or a lot in the amount you receive. Some CSA's have a certain amount of work that is factored in. You can learn all about it on Local Harvest and find where one in located near you. Click here.
Our CSA is through McCracken Farms in Brockport NY. In the coming weeks I plan to share information about them as well as document the produce we receive and what we do with it. Yeah! McCracken Farms shares recipes and ideas as well as information about the produce that is current. It is such a lovely touch and I sure appreciate it!
