Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
Here at Sol y Sombra Farm, we understand the importance of healthy soil, organic produce and buying local which is why we are so committed to producing fresh fruits and vegetables and reaching out to the community with everything we grow.
During the 2010 growing season we doubled our garden area so that now in 2013 we can offer you a wider variety of vegetables, beautiful melons, flavorful herbs and stunning flowers. From the first week of May to the last week of September CSA members will receive a basket of fresh (seasonal) produce.
We know what it feels like to get a basket with kale, chard or another vegetable that you don't normally cook with, which is why we will be offering weekly recipes and helpful tips on our Facebook CSA newsletter. The recipes will highlight a key vegetable we deliver that week and hopefully inspire a new way to prepare and enjoy any edible item we have to offer.
This is one of the greatest joys of gardening, using what you grew to create a healthy and delicious meal for you and your loved ones.
We encourage our CSA members to offer their opinions or favorite way to enjoy their weekly produce. We also invite you to enjoy the beautiful seasonal flowers available throughout the growing season with their wide variety of uses.
With your support local agriculture is able to blossom. By purchasing from farms within your area, you are not only helping the hard working families who work long hours in the field to supply markets with local organic produce, but you are stimulating the local economy.
Thank you for doing your part to build strong community and a healthy future. We look forward to growing for you today, tomorrow and many years to come.
