Time to Sign Up for Your Local CSA
Many of the farms offer organics as well as add-on products such as artisanal breads,eggs,meat or fish. If you are lucky ,your farm may deliver right to your door, otherwise they arrange a local pick-up spot each week.
This is a great way to ensure you and your family are eating healthy,fresh produce while supporting local farmers. The cost helps pay for seeds,fertilizer,equipment and staff. Still too expensive? Don't worry! Many local farms set up weekly farmer's markets in different towns so families are able to purchase what they need within their price range.
Below is a list of CSA programs available throughout Long Island. Visit their websites and see what works best for you! Enjoy the bounty!
