PostSubject: CSA - a Paleo Dieter's Best Friend   Sat Apr 03, 2010 11:43 pm

What is a CSA you might ask?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and it is a way for the average person to get produce directly from a local farm, and help support those local farms, while getting natural, healthy, seasonal products that aren't pumped full of water or sprayed with preservatives or sealers or waxes to look pretty and cause them to last longer so that they can be shipped without spoiling on the way.

Every CSA farm is different - from what they offer in their boxes, to how they deliver, to the prices that they charge per share or subscription, to the rules (if they have any) , or requirements (again, if they have any. But it should be noted that some farms do require their CSA members to help out with the farm in some way - best to learn that better one signs up).

Some only do produce, while others will include things like eggs, nuts, honey, and some even offer meat from their livestock.

You can easily find a CSA farm near you by doing a search with your zipcode on this website: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Just click the above link, and then on the right hand side, underneath the little map, you will see "Where?" with a box next to it that says Zip/City - just put in your zip code into that box and then click the "Search" button and then a list of local CSA farms will show up.

You can see the farms' page on the Local Harvest site which will tell you a little about it, and find the farm's website links, as well as read any reviews that others have given of their CSA experience with that farm.

It will likely take a little digging to find the CSA farm that fits your household's needs and your lifestyle, but when you find that farm that does the trick, it is SO worth it!

This is invaluable for a Paleo dieter - as it gives us produce that maybe we might not otherwise have experience with, and it usually suits our diets nicely, and it's seasonal to boot, so it's very close to what paleolithic people were eating, and even better, it helps your local farms who really NEED all the support that they can get from their communities!

It is truly a win-win for all I feel, and I think it ought to work really nicely for pretty much anyone!!
