Good for the Consumer

  • Ultra - fresh, seasonal, and local produce offers the most flavor and nutrition. No wax coatings, chemical ripening agents, and other preservatives
  • Certified organic produce grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers
  • Exposure to new vegetables and new ways of cooking
  • Kids typically favor food from “their” farm- even veggies they’ve never been known to eat
  • Develop a relationship with the farmer who grows your food and learn more about how food is grown and how to store and prepare it

Good for the Environment

  • The land is treated with respect
  • As a small local farm, it is more energy efficient with plenty of handwork and small machinery
  • Relatively little energy expended in distribution (the average distance from food to plate outside of community supported agriculture is 1300 miles!)
  • Cover crops are planted to prevent erosion and replace nutrients into the soil

Good for the Farmer

  • Have an opportunity to get to know the people who eat the food they grow
  • Farmer can concentrate on farming, on what they do best, rather than marketing their products
  • Community support in the dwindling quantity of small local farms
