For two years we have been part of a meat CSA and absolutely loved it. We get local, farm fresh pork chops, ham steak, chickens, rabbit, ducks, bacon, sausage, pate, and all sorts of other yummy proteins.
This past weekend we signed up for another one… a bread CSA! We’re very excited about this. Each week we will get one loaf of bread and one extra type of bread. The extra type could be bagels, croissants, scones, and more! We get our first delivery this week of 5 grain bread and blueberry muffins. Can’t wait!
Oh, and if you’re not sure what a CSA stands for, it’s community shared agriculture. Essentially you’re investing in a local farm and you receive a portion of the farm’s products. In our case, we receive 10-12 pounds of seasonal and locally bred meat a month, and two items of bread a week. It’s a great way to support local agriculture and eat seasonal, fresh food!
