Celebrate Community-Supported Agriculture in February with MCFC CSA!
MCFC CSA is pleased to join other farms from around the country for the third annual CSA Day on February 22, when you can
join other like-minded people around the country who are committed to:
eating healthful foods and preparing them for their families;
supporting their local farmer;
being kind to our planet;
learning something new; and
being adventurous in the kitchen.
CSA (community-supported agriculture) is a subscription to a season’s worth of sustainable, locally grown produce that is distributed to members throughout the harvesting season. CSA members enjoy the quality of fresh fruits and vegetables for their family, while supporting their local farmer.
According to Small Farm Central’s CSA Farming Annual Report, the most popular time to join a CSA each year is at the end of February. Read the report here. To promote this important time for farmers, CSA Day was coined, and each year it falls on the last weekend in February to celebrate community-supported agriculture, and CSA farmers enjoy an influx of sign-ups from members, which gives them revenue when they need it most for the growing season.
As a CSA member, you make a seasonal commitment to a small farmer in your area, and can take pleasure in knowing where and how their food is grown. “Community-supported agriculture is all about relationships and feeding families,” said Simon Huntley, CEO of Small Farm Central, a company that provides marketing support for small farms and started CSA
Day which echos our a message our farmer Gerry Greco said to us last year, ” Working with your farmer, you have community, you are part of a community. You cannot get community from Fresh Direct delivery.”
