WHY JOIN A CSA?

TOP REASONS TO JOIN A CSA!

 

  1. It's an opportunity for the farmer to get to know the people they grow food for. 
  2. Better cash flow for farms as they plan for a new season. Early payments from shareholders means enough money to buy seeds, farm supplies, and plan for labor expenses at the start of the season.
  3. When farmers can identify their market before the beginning of the season, they can plan the use of their resources more efficiently, which means less waste of money and of crop.
  4. A better market for growing a greater variety of produce, most importantly heirloom varieties. 
  5. Eliminating the middle-man in the packaging, transportation, and selling of produce. This means more profit ends up in the growers pocket, which they can then reinvest in their business.
  6. No groundwater pollution from heavy applications of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, which ensures better drinking water for us and future generations.
  7. Management of healthy nutrient cycling of the soil by maintaining the balance of things like nitrogen, phosphorous, and methane. This means the soil remains productive for this generation and those to follow.
  8. Feeding your family nutrient dense, naturally grown produce. 
  9. The privilege of eating vibrant, just-harvested produce. If you’re a part of a CSA, say goodbye to wilted greens and tasteless tomatoes. Your produce will be harvested when it’s ripe and, in most cases, find its way into your kitchen within a day of being picked. This means better flavor and more nutrient-rich produce. 
  10. Access to heirlooms and more unusual produce varieties, and the fun that comes with trying new things! 
  11. The ability to get to know your farmers and develop a relationship of trust with those that nourish your family. 
  12. Creating for yourself and the next generation a relationship with the earth, outside of structured parks and playgrounds, is good for cognitive development and happiness. 

 

What to consider before you join a CSA!

1. You should enjoy preparing meals from scratch and experimenting with produce you might not have tried before. Roasting, juicing, and making casseroles are fun and easy ways to enjoy your veggie CSA.

2. You cannot pick what will end up in your sack each week. It's a grab bag of produce and herbs, a surprise if you will. Now, if you have an allergy issue, we will most definitely take note. We'll be happy to replace the item with something you will enjoy, but we must know of the issue prior to the first week of CSA pick up. 

3.  If you miss your CSA pick up and do not contact us, we will donate your sack to a farmers market volunteer, or glean the produce to a local organization. If you are able to contact us prior to missing your pick up date, we are happy to extend your CSA by one week, or double up the following week. At the end of the day, we want you to receive your CSA goodies! 


Thank you for taking time to  learn a bit more about the Whitton Farms CSA! We hope to be your farmers for the 2019 growing season!

Gratefully,

Keith & Jill Forrester
