Whatcom Farms Offering CSAs in 2014
It’s that time of year again–time to consider signing up for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program. (Learn more about what a CSA is and how it works.) CSAs can be a good local food solution for people who don’t have much time or inclination to shop for food. They can also be more affordable than purchasing food items separately.
This year’s CSA offerings (see below) include produce, chickens, eggs, fish, flowers, and much more. It’s really quite amazing! We live in a local food paradise. The following list of farms offering Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs was put together by Sustainable Connections and the Community Food Co-op, and printed here with their permission. There is also a copy of the list, which contains more details for each farm. To get a copy, either contact Sustainable Connections Food & Farm Program or pick one up at either Co-op store location (1220 N. Forest St. or 315 Westerly Rd., Bellingham). The annual Whatcom Food and Farm Finder booklet published by Sustainable Connections also includes CSA information.
Wherever possible, the Farm Name is linked to the farm’s CSA webpage for full details.
