Do you know what a CSA is?

No, it’s not some international counter-terrorist organization (unless, you consider unhealthy food terrorism). CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.  Okay, so what does that mean? It’s kind of like a trip to the grocery store that you share with 50-100 friends. When you buy into a CSA, you’re essentially buying a share in a local farmer’s crop. That provides you with a variety of reasonably priced fresh produce, which is dropped off at a central location for weekly pickup.

Local produce is fresher, so it is more nutritious and tastes better. Also, it’s usually more affordable and is better for the environment than, well, than every other option. Plus, if you’re single, it’s a great way to meet hot farmers.

The bottom line – I want you to eat Fresh, Local, Organic and Whole. This is a great way to start. Check out localharvest.org to find a CSA in your area.
