2009 CSA Directory Released!

Puget Sound Fresh, a program of Cascade Harvest Coalition, has released the 2009 Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Directory. The 2009 edition of the directory features alphabetical listings of 71 farms offering CSA programs in the Puget Sound region and eight home delivery services that buy directly from local farms.

In these uncertain economic times, everybody is on the look-out for a great deal. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs are a great value, offering excellent access to local, farm-fresh food for a great price, while building stronger community relationships. CSAs are direct farmer-to-consumer arrangements, where consumers purchase a "share" of a local farm and, in exchange, the farm prepares a box or bag of the farm's products. It’s a unique and special relationship that builds community, supports local farmers and gives consumers direct access to fresh, local farm products.

For more information about CSA farms in the Puget Sound region or to order a free supply of 2009 CSA Directories, please contact Mark McIntyre at (206)632-0606 or mark@cascadeharvest.org.
