What is Community Supported Agriculture?(aka CSA)

Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a way to support local farming in your area. A CSA is often the term used to describe a box of local, seasonal, fresh produce and food products that customers receive on a recurring basis. At No More Empty Pots, we select or “aggregate” items in our Community Harvest CSA box from various local farmers and producers in order to bolster the local food system and minimize some of the farmers’ growing risks. Our CSA subscribers receive high-quality food that is always local and often fresher than what is available in the grocery store! That means the food will last longer, too. The vegetables and fruit are typically organic, which means they are grown with minimal-to-no undesirable pesticides, herbicides, and synthetic fertilizers. Not only are Community Harvest subscribers supporting our local economy, they also have the chance to experiment with new produce, grains and legumes. We aim to highlight local farmers and producers so that subscribers can “get to know” and trust where their food is coming from!
