CSA Day 2017
For most of us, February is early to be thinking about summer gardening, but not if you are a farmer.
The last Friday in February is CSA Day! CSA stands for "Community Supported Agriculture". Generally, when you buy into a CSA you are buying a share of a local farm and will get a portion of a weekly harvest. Typically, you receive a grocery bag full of fresh, locally grown organic produce each week. It is well worth the cost compared to buying from your local market and you get to support a local farmer. The income the farmer receives from CSAs helps to fund the starting costs for each season for things like seeds and labor costs that are incurred prior to harvest.
Eating locally produced organic food is a great step toward health, it supports the local economy, and helps the environment by reducing the burden of transporting your food from distant regions. Your doctors would like to encourage you to consider buying a CSA share to supplement your diet with locally grown good stuff!
There are several farms around Bozeman that offer CSA shares. the Local Harvest website has links to 12 CSA farms in the Bozeman area. http://www.localharvest.org/bozeman-mt/csa
