CSAs are a great way to receive farm-fresh ingredients with little effort involved.

Community supported agriculture, or CSA, allows community members to purchase shares, or memberships, with area farms. Contribution early in the season allows farmers to properly gauge demand. In return for purchasing a CSA share, community members receive farm-fresh product, without the retail markups.
