Open House Supports Local Farmers

News
The annual community supported agriculture (CSA) open house event gives consumers a chance to meet farmers and learn more about individual farm CSA harvest share programs for this year. 
CSA harvest share programs are a partnership between a specific farm, or group of farms and consumers. Members or “shareholders” share the spring start-up costs, and summer/autumn harvest rewards of farming. Shareholders pay a fee at the beginning of the growing season to help meet a farm’s operating expenses for the upcoming season. In return, shareholders receive a portion of the farm’s harvest each week throughout the growing season. Shareholders receive a box or bag once a week containing several varieties of what is in season and available. Most farms offer a summer season option that runs for about 18-20 weeks from June to October. Some farms also offer shorter season options in mid-spring, late fall and during winter. CSA operators strive to offer pickup locations that are conveniently close to their shareholders.
The CSA Open House free to the public. Light refreshments will be served, while they last. For more information about the open house or to research local CSA programs, visit csautah.org.
