CSAs: Sign Up Now for Great Produce, Good Meat

“Think Ahead” That’s the key to reaping the benefits of a CSA. You will be hungry this summer and autumn, just like you are every day. That won’t change. What can change is thinking ahead now and ordering a CSA. Each week, you’ll have a magnificent box of produce and clean meat. Then, when you’re hungry, you’ll fill yourself up with real food that nourishes and nurtures, i.e., what you really want to be eating.
