Celebrate CSA Day & Get your discounts today!

You don't need to wait for CSA Day. Check out our partner discounts and sign up today!

National CSA Day is February 23, 2018. Community Supported Agriculture shares, or CSAs, are just that. You, the community member, buys a share of agricultural product. When you buy early in the year, that investment helps the farmer prepare for the production season. Thus, discounts that encourage sign-ups are plentiful this time of year! 

Last year, staff members in our Chicago and Caledonia offices decided to literally put our money where our mouths were, and join some CSAs! Our choices were different, with some crossover. We tried Angelic Organics CSA, Roots & Wings CSA, Sitka Salmon Shares (a community supported fishery), and CSAs of our Upper Midwest CRAFT farmers. The return was more fulfilling than any of us could imagine. Our vegetables were beautiful, delicious, and plentiful. We received the freshest wild seafood imaginable - right to our doorstep. We cooked, much more than we normally do, and shared our culinary delights with others. We felt healthier and happier, and many of us lost weight. Some of us shared shares, or gave honey, seafood, meat and vegetables to friends - extending the health and love beyond our kitchens.

Our partners are offering discounts from Caledonia to Chicago to Rockford and even Alaska! Check them out. Your body and community will thank you!
