National CSA Day is coming up!! We would like to invite you to engage in local agriculture by signing up for a summer CSA. Rainshadow is running an earlybird promotion if you sign up on or before CSA Day: February 23rd. You’ll receive a bonus basket of eggs, pickles, and fresh milled flour (with a gluten free option)!! Sign up at www.rainshadoworganics.com
This is the third annual CSA Day on February 23, when you can join other like-minded people around the country who are committed to:
- eating healthful foods and preparing them for their families;
- supporting their local farmer;
- being kind to our planet;
- learning something new; and
- being adventurous in the kitchen.
CSA (community-supported agriculture) is a subscription to a season’s worth of sustainable, locally grown produce and meats that are distributed to members throughout the harvest season. It is a form of investment that allows small farmers to continue growing on a scale that is made possible by the CSA model. CSA members enjoy the quality of fresh fruits and vegetables for their family, while supporting their local farmer. As a member, you can take pleasure in knowing where and how your food is grown, and have an open line of communication with your farmer, who is happy to teach members what’s in season throughout the year, and help them appreciate and cook food that they may not otherwise be exposed.
