In Case You Need a Reason . . .

For us, joining a CSA is a no brainer, but we understand that it might not be for everyone.  In fact, some of you may be discovering this wonder of dietary empowerment for the first time.  So, in case you need a reason to join a CSA, read on:

  • At under $24 a week, there is no way to get a better deal on fresh, organic produce that you don’t grow yourself.  In my experience at Whole Foods, one bag of groceries averages $50.  And the cost is going up, check out the latest article from The Gothamist.
  • The food is quiet literally picked, put in bins, and transported to your CSA pick-up site.  Picking it yourself is the only way to get it more fresh.
  • The health benefits of eating with the seasons has been touted for years.  Here’s a great article from the Utne Reader.

  • You support a local, farmer of a certified organic farm.  In this case Farmer John Krueger of Starbrite Farm who told me on the phone yesterday that he currently rents his farmland and more CSA sites and members means an opportunity for him to fulfill a dream of owning his own farm.

Still not convinced?  Check out the following pictures of just how glorious your feeding options could be:
