Happy Holidays! 6 reasons to gift a share.
On the farm we are gearing up for the 2016 growing season and as I'm sure you can guess this is our slowest time of the year. We can use some help and would love the opportunity to have you join our CSA program. Your early support helps the farm with purchase of seeds, greenhouse supplies, tractor and equipment repairs and improvements. Below are a few encouraging reasons to gift a share for the holidays. The gift that really does keep giving! Support local economy local agriculture and support your own personal health.
As a CSA member, you know that you’re eating healthier. As a good friend or family member, you know you want the best health for your loved ones. It’s an easy call. Plus, a CSA share is less expensive than a treadmill!
It Lasts All Year Long
Whether munching crisp greens in springtime or roasting hearty squash in the fall, they’ll remember your thoughtfulness all through the seasons.
Fresh food just tastes better and there is nothing fresher than something picked and eaten soon after. As a bonus, you'll probably get invited to a few good meals, yourself.
It Supports Local Business
Buying local helps your community’s economy and the environment. Plus, maybe your gift recipient will make some new friends and connections they never would have without joining.
It Has No Wasteful Packaging or Clutter
Besides maybe some corn and tomatillos, there won’t be anything to unwrap with this gift. No one will get stressed out by having more “stuff” around the house, either.
It Keeps You Connected
Give someone a CSA share and you can pretty much guarantee you’ll be hearing from them. Whether it’s sharing recipes, asking for advice, or telling you how much the kids love those kale chips, it gives you a chance each week to stay a part of their lives.
