This is our third year doing a CSA but this year we moved to a new farmer. This year we will actually get to go to the farm to pick up our produce and they have many PYO (pick your own) opportunities as well. My little farmer Z is going to love driving over the farm, picking veggies and seeing where all of our delicious produce comes from. It should be great!
So what are you waiting for??? You too could have farm fresh organic veggies and fruits this growing season. It is a wonderful way to support your local farms and your family will benefit from all of the healthy and delicious food. Yes it is hard to prepay for your produce but if you are like my family, produce is half of our grocery bill every week! We love our fruits and vegetables and I try to only buy organic (especially the dirty dozen). Simple Mom does a whole article on eating healthy on a budget, there are a lot of good tips over there. I know that I am able to feed my family organic fruits and veggies, organic milk, free range and organic eggs, grass fed beef (S is the only one who eats beef), and organic free range chicken and my total grocery bill is usually only $125 a week. It can be done if you are creative, eat whole foods (cook from scratch), don't eat meat every day and know where to shop :)
Are any of you joining a CSA this year???
