Ever wanted to get a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share but maybe weren’t sure if it was right for you, or even if you could afford it? Friends & Farms has heard the call, and as of this week, they’ve made it possible to pay for a CSA share on a weekly basis, rather than in one lump sum at the beginning of the season. Says Philip Gottwals, one of the company’s founders: “ [This] option permits customers to pay for food the same week they get it…we want to make fresh, regional food available to all – Our new payment option goes a long way in making this happen.” And that means a long way toward a fresher, healthier, and more delicious dinner table for you and your household.
Of course, this new option doesn’t just benefit us—it also benefits the farmers. After all, more ways to purchase fresh, local food, means more support for local farms. When you buy a CSA share through Friends and Farms, you get a weekly basket of whatever’s fresh off the farm that week, and you can choose from baskets suited to one person, two people, or four. And since CSAs are for everyone, you can specify if you’ll need a vegetarian baskets, or one that’s gluten or dairy free. Friends & Farms states clearly in their mission statement the goal of connecting people to their food sources, and making fresh, local food readily available. And not only are we glad it’s in their mission—we’re thrilled at how hard they’re working to make it a reality.
