Virtual farmers market

It is important now, as is always, to support our local farmers, growers, and ranchers. Here we have gathered information from local farms that are currently offering pick-up or delivery options.

C.S.A. = Community supported agriculture

CSA is an acronym for Community Supported Agriculture and is a way to buy fresh fruits and vegetables directly from the farmer in your local community. Supporting local agriculture is a way to support your local business community, your neighbors and keep your food dollars in the local economy.

The concept of CSA is simple. A farmer offers a certain number of “shares” to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included such as fruit, fresh eggs or honey.

Consumers may purchase a share (aka a “membership” or a “subscription”) and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.

The following local farms offer CSA:
