CSAs - Community-Supported Agriculture in Greater Rochester, NY
Families purchase shares (or half-shares, or bimonthly shares) of produce that is either picked up or delivered to them, fresh from the farm, each week during the growing season. Some farms encourage pick-your-own, in some you get to help out on the farm. What a great field-to-table lesson for the whole family!
There are lots of wonderful CSAs in our area... see our master list below.
If there is a local CSA that we have missed, please email us to let us know, and we'll contact them to help them add themselves to this list. Thank you!
