We are Farmers!!!

Yay!!! We joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) group today!!!  My mom was actually the inspiration- they joined a CSA in Colorado a couple of years ago, and it was this magical thing where they had veggies straight from the farm delivered weekly!  We were visiting one fall, and my hubby and I went with mom to pick up her veggies.  Mom and I cooked dinner together that night, and we were amazed at how different- how delicious & flavorful- they were compared to grocery store veggies. 

So, our CSA here works in much the same way.  We found one with a delivery point within walking distance of our house (there were only 2 in this area anyway), and the way it works is that we pay like $300 for 16-20 weeks of fresh fruits, veggies, eggs, and pecans once a week.  We did the math (‘cuz we’re nerds) and it worked out to be about $20 a week for the veggies- and I know we’re spending way more than that now at the grocery store.  Plus, they are grown naturally and without pesticides, and we’re supporting local farmers & sustainability!  Love it! 

Here’s how I found it, and how you can find one, too!

Both links will also find local farmer’s markets, restaurants, organic grocers, and CSA’s…they are so much fun to peruse!  I found another farm nearby that sells grass-fed beef- so I may need to check that out, too!  🙂
