Happy Week 7/10 of the Winter CSA! We are more than halfway through the season, have you purchased your spring share yet? CSA purchases this time of year are immensely helpful in preparing for spring. Pre-season can be one of the most expensive times for farmers who need to purchase seed and supplies for the upcoming season, in spite of winter cash flow being a fraction of what it is in the high season. In fact, this friction is what lead to the birth of the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model! Your support is greatly appreciated, year round!
