Looking to get more local food on your plate and support a BC producer with start-up capital for their new season? Consider joining a CSA program this year.
CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a food distribution system that enables food lovers to support local agriculture, give farmers job security, take care of the environment and guarantee themselves a share of fresh, healthy local produce at a fair price.
Community Supported Agriculture and Fishery memberships come in a variety of formats and can include everything from fresh fruits & veggies, eggs, meat & seafood – even honey, herbs, flowers, and grains.
“This is my 3rd CSA experience with 3 different farms and by far the best. Thank you to everyone involved, and I’m really looking forward to next season!”
“LOVED the weekly emails. So good. The recipes were so thoughtfully selected and often incorporated multiple veggies from the box. I made many (75%?) of the recipes, and we sometimes did our other shopping around these recipes. Big kudos to whomever made those selections: you’re awesome.”
“Fabulous workers: helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, efficient and always positive. I always knew the safety protocols in place were keeping us safe.”
