Do you know what a CSA Food Box is? Learn what Community Supported Agriculture is & how it works

I've asked 57 people so far and wasn't too surprised that only a few people knew what Community Supported Agriculture was.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way that consumers can buy local seasonal fresh food direct from farmers. We pay a subscription fee or membership fee and each week we receive a box or bag of local fresh seasonal food, some foods you may have eaten before some you may not so food boxes are sort of like Christmas because you get surprises. This arrangement benefits both farmer and eater in a variety of ways, most important to me is receiving pure food and developing relationships with the farmers who grow the food.

Visit the Local Harvest website to learn more about CSAs and to find CSAs near you, your family, and friends because why not give CSA subscriptions to people you care about for birthdays, Christmas, wedding gifts, moving to a new area, etc. The gift of organic food is a terrific gift!

Currently the Local Harvest database lists 213 CSAs in the State of Washington!
