Community Supported Agriculture

Friday, October 10th, 2008

So today I have been working a little bit on our Community Supported Agriculture. Our goal is to have 20 members.  We have reached that goal in the past, especially since we have established a drop-off point over in Astoria. 

I have set a personal goal of getting 30 members this time around. So I have made a flyer to hang around to let everyone know that there is a CSA available here on the peninsula. Last night I went and pasted them all over this little town and when I came into work this morning I had already gotten calls from people who saw the flyers and wanted to JOIN! I’m so excited, I think CSA is really a great way for people to learn and understand where their food is coming from. You don’t know who grows those salad greens you by over in Safeway, or where those baby carrots came from. Purchasing produce from local farms lets people get to know the hands that feed them. 

So help support local farms and join a CSA around your area, or if you can visit our farm-store…come by and you can see where YOUR food is coming from.
