9 CSAs from the LET um EAT Collective

February 26 is CSA Day: a day to celebrate Community Supported Agriculture, CSA Farms and sign up to support your local farm through the growing season. By participating in a CSA, you are guaranteeing your business to that farm, creating a valuable relationship in your community, and providing the farm with money up front to get their farm up and running for the year. Think of it as an investment that gives back in the best way: through healthy and delicious food, to sustain yourselves, your friends and your family.

CSA Day was created by Small Farm Central, who found through their network that February 28 was the most common day to sign up for CSAs. They’ve got a great national database of farms participating in CSA Day and even a video contest, which we covered earlier this week.
