Many people are joining CSAs at this time because they want more options: far fewer people handle your food versus supermarkets; it is a dependable stream for food in a fragile food chain; farm food is healthy and builds the immune system.
We are adapting to the current crisis. Our shares are pre-packaged at the farm in bags with members names on them--grab and go style. On site we wear masks and gloves, have sanitizer, and observe social distancing. Our surplus goes to those in need during this crisis.
Our volunteer requirement is always being evaluated. Normally, CSAs require members to give time at distribution or other tasks. This expectation was relaxed in 2020 and for 2021we will see where we are in June and after. No one will be expected to work who is uncomfortable, of course. Talk to us about any concerns.
Stay safe and sane, everybody!
