Costs to Get Involved with a CSA
We looked around and found many wonderful CSA’s in our area. With an average cost of $11-15 per week for a bountiful box of organic fruits and veggies, we were amazed at the freshness and the wonderful people attached to these lovely products. In our box came 6 products from 6 different organic growers. Not only did we reap the savings as the growers did not have to market and waste funds on packaging and marketing materials that would just be thrown out, but we also had fresher sweeter food that hadn’t been driving around breaking down in transit, and incurring heavy fuel costs imposed on us. We saved precious fuel by buying locally helping the environment. The smiles and joy we brought to many local families by supporting them have been priceless and made the purchase mean so much more.
Knowing Your Food Source on A Personal Level
The CSA’s and Local Farmers Market allow you the opportunity to get up close and personal to your food source. You can ask questions and learn more about where your food is from and how it gets from its grower to your table. They also welcome all questions about the growing process. Their was no extra cost for organic fruits and vegetables and we were proud to say all the fruits and veggies were naturally organic.
The local growers took great pride in producing more responsible agriculture and everyone wins. We now are involved with our monthly farm days and have wonderful relationships with our local farms and family producers. Do a simple search in your area or zip code and find out where your local farmers market and CSA’s are. You will be surprised that they are all around us.
