RVA: Community Supported Agriculture

Stuffed pattypan squash recipe using Origins Farm produce

Who else is ready for spring and the start of CSA (community supported agriculture) shares? Over on 17Apart we are partnering up again with Alistar and Rebecca of Origins Farm to support their CSA and of course local farms and produce. Since those themes are the main focus of this blog I also wanted to share the details here:

If you shop at St. Stephen's Market or The Byrd House Market, there is some great news for those interested in signing up for the Origins Farm 2014 CSA — Alistar & Rebecca are offering an early-bird registration discount for their 2014 CSA share! You can get $100 off the full share option or $30 off the half share option when you register this January. Regular CSA share fees return in February, so it's a great time to take advantage if you are local to these Virginia markets. Learn more about the Origins Farm CSA program, its benefits and how to sign up here.

  1. Thanks for sharing this! I really like the idea of a flexible CSA and wasn't aware that was an option. Definitely going to look into joining - thanks again!
