Community-supported agriculture or crop sharing is super important to any community’s environment, food and socioeconomic system. As a team, we’ve been talking a lot about how important it is to us that we participate in Community Supported Agriculture. Which, in case you didn’t know, is a system that connects producers and consumers within the food system by allowing the consumer to subscribe to the harvest of a certain farm or group of farms.
The benefit for both the consumer and the farmer is not only a deepened sense of community, but it allows the producer and consumer to come to the market as equals and make an exchange with both fair prices and fair wages. As a consumer, you pay for transparency, authenticity and environmental stewardship.
Our CSA here at Tucker&Co is through Good Keeper Farm! If you happen to live in or near Cumberland County, PA, we highly recommend it! If you don’t live near us or in PA at all, we encourage you to find a CSA local to you. The time for more delicious and nutritious food is now!
