I am forwarding a message about a CSA. For those who do not know about CSA's. You pay a monthly amount for shares of food. If the crop is good you get more for your share, and if bad less. You receive proportional to the harvest. If tomatoes are a bumper crop expect a lot of tomatoes for your share, etc..
I do not personally know about this particular CSA, but it is worth checking out. If other members have knowlege of this CSA (good or bad), please inform the rest of us/
Subject: Omnivore CSA from Fickle Creek Farm: Warm Season 2012
Warm Season 2012
from Fickle Creek Farm
Hello from Fickle Creek Farm.
We are happy to announce our Warm Season Omnivore CSA for 2012. Why an omnivore CSA? We feel that this is a great way to eat a diversity of high quality, fresh farm products all season that are grown and raised not only locally, but on one farm. You will eat as we do ourselves as the season progresses, quite a strong farmer-community connection! We are proud of the way we grow our produce and raise our animals - naturally and always with a mind toward humane treatment of livestock, low-input practices, and environmental sustainability.
We appreciate your support of small-scale, local farms through participation in Community Supported Agriculture!
Your Farmers, Ben and Noah, Bryan, Tracy, Dave, and May
