Last Chance: Full Season CSAs
Ending May 1: The opportunity to invest in the full 26 weeks for any of our six CSA shares!
Freedom Farms is proud to offer a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between our farm and you. Freedom Farms grows food for the greater Pittsburgh community and the community supports our farm. By making a commitment to Freedom Farms, you become “members” of the CSA. In the winter and early spring, members buy a share of the harvest; the farmers then use this money for seeds, greenhouse expenses, equipment, labor. In return, members receive a weekly assortment of the farm’s products.
It is a relationship. We are able to continue to do the work that we love, pouring our daily energy into providing fresh, wholesome food that we can be proud of. Our fruits and vegetables are ripened on the vine without all of the pesticides and GMOs found in shipped produce. Our farm-raised meat has no added growth hormones or steroids. The same is true for our farm fresh eggs, milk and dairy products. Our carry out food is prepared with our fresh products.
You know that you are supporting local farmers. You know that you are often eating Friday what was picked on Thursday. You know that your family will be safe from many of the carcinogens found in produce that has been shipped at discounted prices and ripened in a truck. And let’s not forget about flavor! There are some obvious reasons why tomatoes from Freedom Farms Farmers Market taste better: sunlight, soil and attention. We don’t need the additives to preserve our produce. And how about variety? We work hard to provide your favorite staples, but we also will introduce you to foods you will never see in your local grocery store!
You can have a huge impact on the farmers in your community by becoming a CSA member. And you can impact the greater community by reducing the miles that your food travels from 2000 miles to 20 or 2! Eating the way that your grandparents did will improve the quality of the recipes you are making at home, and you can share this experience with your own children. Now that’s a tradition worth passing on!
