CSA shares are available
ST. PAUL — Shares in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms are still available, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture is reminding consumers.
CSA farms sell subscriptions or memberships to individuals or families who pay up front to receive a share of produce, generally once per week for 14-20 weeks. Typically a full share is enough to feed four vegetable-loving adults. Many farms will offer full, half and even mini-shares. Some include seasonal recipes, e-newsletters, and on-the-farm events like pumpkin picking in the cost.
Consumers can find a local CSA farm in the Minnesota Grown Directory. It includes information about 87 CSA farms with 142 drop sites around the state.
