**Someone was asking us today about our CSA add-ons and understanding our relationship with our partner farms. I realized I must have never really done a good job explaining it… Our relationship is… COMMUNITY! We do not charge any of our CSA add-ons, nor take any fee or money from them. All the money you pay for a CSA add-on… goes STRAIGHT to our partner farms. WHY? Because we just LOVE supporting other local farms that much! We have been blessed to have such wonderful CSA customers and want to be sure they know about as many local producers as possible!! So remember, if you purchase a CSA add-on… you aren't helping us… you are helping another awesome local family!! **
