In case you aren't familiar with what a CSA is...
Community Supported Agriculture is a way to support your local farmers by purchasing their goods. The CSA that we do is through a local grocery store, costs $10 to sign up for, and has been amazing. We simply go to the store on our pick up day, pay $25, and get our bag of goodies. We had chosen Saturdays, but since we were out of town this week, we asked to pick up on the other pick up day, which was today.
We already know what it is that we are getting each week because it is posted online. It is usually a mixture of fruits, veggies, and some meat, eggs and/or dairy. Each item is assigned points, so that if there is an item that you don't want (like eggplant...yuck), you can trade it out for something else (more corn...yes!). The quality is always excellent and you just feel good supporting the local farms. Plus, it's a good deal. This week's bag would have cost $38.46 and we just paid our $25...not too shabby!!!!
Here's what we came home with...
- two 8oz. KC Strip Steaks
- twelve ears of Andy's Candy Corn
- a seedless yellow watermelon
- 3lbs. of tomatoes
- 6oz. of blackberries
We already had some of the corn and watermelon for dinner...so good.
