CSA: My New Favorite Subscription Isn’t A Magazine

My Community Supported Agriculture subscription is my new favorite thing. Even though we’re still eating our way through last week’s farm box, I couldn’t pass up this week’s. It’s like having my birthday every Thursday afternoon. And weirdly thrilling.

This week’s farm box includes two Pink Lady apples (that I’ve already eaten), four sweet potatoes, five oranges (three of them blood oranges), forty brussel sprouts, four leeks, five long wands of rosemary, one head of bok choy, and one head of red butter lettuce.

    What is a farm box and where are you located? Sounds interesting.

    Hi SueLynn!

    I am located in Los Angeles and I use this farm box program: https://www.eroots.org/

    There are CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs all over the world. Basically, you, the shopper, commit to buying a certain number of farm boxes a year from a local farmer. A farm box is filled with a mix of seasonal fruits and vegetables. Some programs will tell you in advance what to expect, but I like the surprise element. Organic farmers gets more money up front and you get first dibs on local food. There are some CSA programs where you can buy milk, honey, eggs, or even part of a cow! To find one in your area do an online search for “Community Supported Agriculture Farm Box” + your town.
