Get Healthy in 2018 - Join a CSA

Frederick County is known for its diversified agriculture industry, ranging from dairy, meats and grains to fruits and vegetables. Even during the cold winter months farmers are busy planning for the growing season, making it a perfect time to sign-up for a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. CSAs are a great benefit to the farmer, enabling them to market their product before the busy growing season days, as well as to plan what produce they need to grow to support the demand of the local community. As a participant in a CSA you purchase a “share”, and in return you get a weekly box of vegetables or other farm produce. So why should you participate in a CSA? You may get exposed to new and exciting produce you have never tried as well as recipes to prepare it; you will benefit from eating healthy locally-grown foods; and you’ll be supporting a local farmer.
