Top 5 Reasons to Join a CSA

In celebration of National #CSAday on Friday, February 24th, we’re listing out our favorite reasons to join a CSA. Here goes:

REASON #5  |  To finally figure out what CSA stands for!
Canadian Starfish Association?!? Not quite – Community Supported Agriculture. By taking part in our CSA, you’re not only supporting the local economy, but you’re drastically simplifying your efforts to acquire high quality, chem-free and local food. It’s a win-win for everyone.

CSA – “A particular network, or association of individuals, who have pledged to support one or more local farms, with growers and consumers sharing the risks and benefits of food production.”

REASON #4  |  Local Agriculture Support
Soil, Water, Seed, Families, Air…sounds like a band from the 70’s. In all seriousness, purchasing a local farm food box is voting with your fork and telling the world what YOU want the food system to look like. Fair, clean, sustainable, and flavorful.

REASON #1  | HEALTH!
Picked fresh, grown clean…get ya some! Let us be your local food gurus. We’re constantly partnering with farms in search of the most wonderful, nutrient-dense, clean food available in Ohio.

We can’t emphasize these things enough.

If you can, grow your own food. If you can’t, let us find it for you.

Our Multi-Farm model allows us to:

• Find the freshest, tastiest, healthiest food in Ohio

• Give business to MANY growers that are looking to reach the public but want to stay on their land instead of trying to figure out marketing or stand at farmer’s markets

• Create a variety over 36 weeks of deliveries a year, supplying our shareholders with produce, meat, cheese, eggs and grains.

Supply  truly local food ALL YEAR round!
