SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE (CSA)
With a CSA,
a farmer offers the public a certain number of "shares"
consisting of vegetables, fruits, and other farm products.
Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a "membership"
or a "subscription") and in return receive a portion of
seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season. You can
learn more about CSAs and find some wonderful recipes by visiting
Blooming Glen Farm's Food Blog.
