csa season is here!

csa season is here!

guys, i'm so excited. csa season is here and ours began this week! buying in to our local farm has always been one of our most favorite things to do. it ends up saves money in the long run, but if you're familiar with CSA's you know it can call for a pretty big chunk of change up front. which for us, means we have to plan ahead and squirrel away our dimes.  it's part of how we live intentionally and put our priorities first.

for those of you who are unfamiliar with how a CSA (community supported agriculture) works, they are all pretty much the same. a farm allows you to buy a share of their produce early in the year and then you get a big box of local organic veggies each week. depending on your community, it'll either be delivered to your doorstep, or you'll have a designated place and time to pick it up each week. it's a great way to support your local farmers, eat well and save money! our farm will be delivering a box each week from now until thanksgiving, which averages out to about $30 a week. it will supply us with all of our vegetables for the week which means all i have to grab at the store are staple items like rice, almond milk and beans.

one of my favorite things about getting our CSA share is that it easily allows us to eat what's in season. it's also (of course) local and organic. it introduces us to new vegetables and shapes the meals i cook each week. for a foodie like me, nothing is more exciting than opening up our box each week!

  • I love doing our local CSA too! I typically do it in the fall rather than the summer, but we have a local farm that I do go shop at every week or so. They usually have more in the box than we can eat in a week anyway for our family of two :)

  • We have the best CSA, I love it so much–OK, there is way too much kale. Ours is actually a school fundraiser too, and is year-round. My son is culminating this year, and can I admit the CSA is what I am most stressed about?
