Celebrate Community-Supported Agriculture on Feb. 24 with Obercreek Farm
Obercreek Farm is pleased to join other farms from around the country for the third annual CSA Day on February 24, 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. It is a form of investment that allows small farmers to continue growing on a scale that may not be sustainable without the CSA model. CSA members enjoy the quality of fresh fruits and vegetables for their family, while supporting their local farmer.
“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. “CSA farmers typically teach members what’s in season throughout the year, and help them appreciate and cook food to which they may not otherwise be exposed."
