This year’s Monadnock Region CSA Fair goes virtual! Enjoy this short video and meet the faces behind your CSA fruits, veggies & more.
Although each local CSA farm is unique, they all offer “shares” of locally grown food to community members. There are variations in price, share size, distribution, and payment plans. Some CSA farms concentrate on vegetable production, while others provide eggs, meat, flowers, berries, and other local products.
A CSA membership supports local farms and our local economy. This video highlights eight area CSA farms.
