Live Auction: Honest Eats CSA Share

Do you know your farmer?  It shouldn't be easier to hit a drive-through than it is to eat nutritious food grown by someone you can shake hands with.  In Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), a customer becomes a "member" of a farm and receives a portion of the farm's harvest.  This type of relationship benefits both the member and the farmer. With a membership share in the Honest Eats Farm 2016 CSA, you will receive one to two grocery bags of local, organically grown vegetables delivered on Thursdays to your home or office for 20 weeks.  Deliveries begin July 7th and end on November 17th.
