|CSA registration season is upon us! If you haven't heard of a CSA, it stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Customers agree to pay a farmer upfront for a share in their harvest. It works out well for the farmer because they receive money at the beginning of the season when they need to buy seeds and supplies and the customer gets a whole season's worth of delicious produce, flowers, and/or meat!
We have so many wonderful local CSA's in our area, including Chilly Hollow Farm (veggies), Far Bungalow Farm (flowers), Moutoux Orchard (whole diet CSA), and Day Spring Farm (whole diet).
We are super excited to be trying a new "Wholesale CSA" program with Chilly Hollow Farm this year! The Merc will be picking up fresh, seasonal vegetables from Chilly Hollow twice a week through the growing season! You can follow along with us and come try out all the fresh, seasonal produce in the shop. We will have a dedicated section in the cooler for our CSA produce.
