Yes, I know we woke up to a dusting of snow this morning, but that doesn’t change the fact that, believe it or not, CSA sign-up season is already underway.
For the uninitiated: Community-supported agriculture (a.k.a. CSA) programs are a convenient way to get your hands on straight-from-the-farm veggies and produce. You buy a “share” in a farm’s harvest and get a box of produce delivered to a pick-up location near you. Most programs allow you to opt for weekly or biweekly deliveries (or half- or full-share options), so you can get the right amount of produce to fit your family’s (or appetite’s) needs. CSAs typically run from early summer to mid-to-late fall.
Sounds awesome, right? If you’re dying to get involved, look no further! We’ve rounded up a handful of terrific CSAs you can join in the Philly area, and we’ll keep updating this guide as 2014 details for other programs in area are finalized. Just don’t wait too long to secure a spot—space is always limited.
