A List of CSA's for My Favorite Friends in Texas, California, & Virginia!

Calling all of my friends in Texas, Virginia, and California—here is a list for you!

Do you have a desire to eat more fruits and vegetables this year? Perhaps it was a New Year’s Resolution. Here is your chance! Support your local economy by supporting local agriculture! Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a program set up by local farmers to provided boxes of produce to the community. The boxes can be picked up, delivered to a drop-off site, or delivered to your home depending on the ability of the farm. These boxes are full of nature’s local bounty! Look back at post of mine in November to get an idea of what the boxes can look like. Some CSA’s are set up where you pay a weekly price, and others have you pay for a season. Either way, it is worth the investment. Choosing to participate in CSA’s will give you the opportunity to eat, feel, and live better!

I just was notified by my CSA that we can now add artisan breads to our share. I quickly send in my deposit to secure one of the 50 spots. Yum, can't wait for June!
