CSA membership updates: mid-spring 2014

Hi edible South Shore & South Coast Readers!

Are you getting hungry for fresh and local farm food? Ever thought of joining a farm? Did you know you can join a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and pick up a share of fresh produce, eggs, flowers, and/or meat each week either at the farm, at a local farmers’ market, or even from a farm stand? That’s right, you have many convenient options.

Here we have an updated local farm list for you that are still accepting members as of today, May 8th, and the contact information to be in touch with each farm.

Happy Eating,
eSS & SC
