You know what else spring means? It means unbelievably fresh food. And we have your weekly trip to the market beat. We’re proud to announce that we are in our 10th season of hosting CSA or Community Supported Agriculture. Starting on the 24th of this month, D & A Farm will be delivering the freshest organic fruits, veggies, melons, and mushrooms to our door every week to be picked up (and consumed) by you.
Since 1998, the idea of investing in a CSA has grown into a healthy phenomenon and all you have to do to get involved is sign up and drop by for your weekly box of D & A goodies. And don't worry about having too little or too much. Half and full shares are available. Half shares are $342 for the approaching 18 week season and feed those households of one or two. Full shares are great for households of four and are $630. But our favorite thing about it is the relationship it develops between the farmer and consumer. Not to mention, buying a “share” of D & A’s Spring/Summer harvest provides the farm with money early in the season, which keeps the cash flow up and our local farms alive. CSA is a way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer.
So, who’s D & A? Operated by Dave and Alan Bentoski, D & A is a 1st generation, small family farm right down the road in Zebulon, Georgia. On 19 acres of cultivated ground, D & A grows and markets over 80 varieties of certified organic foods. Currently, their food can be found also be found locally at Morningside Farmers Market, Zebulon’s Wednesday Market, and several local restaurants. We look forward to seeing you beaming with your fresh food glow!
