You EAT very fresh produce--Much of it harvested just hours before you pick it up. By nature of CSA's tight producer/consumer relationship, we have the luxury of growing garden variety vegetables that are harvested when ripe, not when they are ready to be packed/shipped/stored.
You KNOW where your food comes from--and how it was grown. We encourage discussion regarding our production methods.
You SUPPORT our local economy--Your investment helps keep money and other resources recirculating among members of our own community. Local self-reliance reduces our dependency upon external inputs and their inherent waste.
You PARTICIPATE in a movement--One where local people have a say over what would otherwise be left to unconscious market forces. In deciding how our local resources are best allocated for long term community vitality, we embrace E.F. Schumacher's challenge:
Let's create an economy where decisions are made as if PEOPLE mattered.
Small is Beautiful.
