A working mom with a family of four, I signed up for a local CSA for many reasons. As a business owner, I prefer to support local business and small farmers. As a wife and mother, I want to provide healthy food for my family and to teach my children to eat well balanced meals that will keep them strong and healthy.
The weekly box of vegetables from our local farmer provides fresh, largely organic produce, that challenges me to prepare them (before the next box arrives!) and to learn about new produce I have not previously encountered. I have discovered creative ways to use vegetables that create meals my family has enjoyed.
I have enjoyed the challenges presented by the CSA subscription, and would like to encourage others to support local farmers and enjoy eating healthier foods.
