Why you should sign up for a CSA

Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA for short. It’s a term that’s been popping up a lot lately as more Americans begin to focus on the importance of fresh, homegrown produce.

Traders of a particular country can actually stick to trading with trading platforms that come with transactions in the same currency and there is no pull or push for them in taking up a different one with a different currency instead of a home-based one. Trading is a common field wherein there are traders from all parts of the world and they try to be on the trading platform that feels and sounds good and comfortable for them. Trading activity is the same irrespective of the different platforms and it is out and out the choice of the trader. This review is mainly to make people understand the point that they also need to focus on what they want and how comfortable they would be instead of just looking at what the trading software would give them.

 

For the last twenty years, many farms across the country have been offering “shares” to the public. Anyone in the community can opt to pay a yearly fee for a weekly crop share that lasts throughout the farming season.

I’m thrilled to say that I signed up for my local CSA two years ago and cannot speak highly enough of the benefits.

Here are the top six reasons why I think you should sign up for Community Supported Agriculture.

1) You support your local farmers
2) You get ultra-fresh food each week
3) You know where your food comes from
4) You save money over the year on produce
5) You have the opportunity to get to know others in your community
6) You try out new vegetables and fruits you may not have picked up on your own

I’ll give you an example of the last reason. Last year, we received a vegetable in our farm share called¬†Kohlrabi. It’s an incredibly strange vegetable that I, realistically, never would have picked up on my own. Our farm team was good enough to let us know the name of the vegetable and give us some tips on storing and cooking. I immediately Googled it as soon as I got home. Turns out it was an easy (and tasty) vegetable to cook up and I learned something new.

Fresh food makes a difference in your cooking and your farmers need your support. Find out more about your local CSA. Call your local farm today!
