Want to learn more about our own Fresh Herb Share or other Long Island CSA opportunities? Join us on Saturday April 13, 11am-3pm at the Long Island CSA Fair in Brentwood. This event is free and open to all!
“The Long Island CSA Fair is a gathering to help consumers find the best community supported agriculture program for their families, and to help farmers fill their CSAs with supportive members.
“Over 18 farms from across Long Island will be participating. This will be a great opportunity to meet the farmer, and to learn more about each individual CSA program, allowing the consumer to choose the perfect program that suits their family’s needs. Some programs offer just produce, while others have “add on” options like fruit, flowers, cheese, bread, eggs, meat and fish. Community Supported Agriculture supports local farmers by purchasing a weekly share of the harvest and paying up front, giving the farmer the financial support at the beginning of the season when they need it. Some programs offer payment plans so you do not need to pay all up front. Either way, CSA’s are one of the best ways to get fresh organic produce at reasonable and fair price! We all know that eating more fruits and vegetables, and supporting local, sustainable agriculture, is great for your health and that of our plant.
“The CSA fair will be hosted indoors, and is open to all who are interested. You can come for a few minutes, or stay for the whole time! Refreshments will be served.
