buy local

Something heavy on my heart lately is the desire to support our local farmers. To be honest, I had never heard of a CSA (community supported agriculture) until 2 years ago. I think a lot of people shy away from the idea because of inconvenience and the thought of getting a box full of endive and parsnips. This is why I was excited to learn of Fresh Harvest. Located just outside Nashville, Fresh Harvest is a unique CSA combined of 2 farms. You only order what you like, in the amounts that suit your needs, and you are not obligated to order every week. It's chemical free, organically grown, and food that you have heard of! They also deliver your food for the week to the heart of Nashville. It doesn't get more convenient than that! If you are looking for a farm or a CSA to join, check out Local Harvest for a list near you.

Thanks for the info. We participate in a CSA through Delvin Farms, but I love how this one allows you to choose what you want. Eating seasonally is great, but I think we end up eating our weight in greens every spring. So good to see you last night my friend!

I can't wait till our markets open for the season....We also have a farm not too far from us that has all homemade foods made with the locally grown produce.

nice post! I'm even worse — I just found out what a CSA was this year when I started researching green topics for a series. I haven't hooked into one yet, but I'm hoping to after our move.
