Save Money on Local Produce with CSA

Apr 30, 2019 12:05AM

Every day of the week during the summer, Clover Food Lab turns into a pickup point for the best farmshares in New England. Signups are now live, and the deadline to sign up for a share is May 31.

A farmshare, or CSA, is a partnership between residents and a farmer. It is the single best way to get money directly into the hands of farmers. And it’s the best way to eat the finest produce for a fraction of what would be paid at the grocery store. Every week, CSA members get a different box, representing the farm, the soil and the weather at that particular time of year in New England.

The lineup of farms this year includes Next Barn Over and Brookford Farm. There’s a cut-flower farmshare from Many Graces (with a special Mother’s Day gift option), a Rhode Island mushroom share with a different varietal of mushroom each week and a culinary/medicinal herb share from Sawmill Farm. For those feeling up to a summer project, there’s even a Windy Ridge Organics seedling share so people can grow their own herbs and vegetables on their windowsill or fire escape.
