2017 CSA Fair

March 25, 2017, 1:00pm - March 25, 2017, 3:00pm

Lincoln urbanites are invited to attend the fourth annual Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Fair taking place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 25th at 2 Pillars Church. With only few weeks of winter left, farmers are getting ready to plant their fields for the 2017 growing season. A CSA is a program that allows consumers to buy a share of a farm’s harvest up front in exchange for a weekly box of produce and other farm goods throughout the growing season. CSA’s are a valuable tool that farmers use to acquire the necessary capital to start a growing season. In addition to providing great local food, these CSA farmers consistently work to connect with their shareholders by sending out newsletters and sharing recipes. Some even encourage members to come out and visit the farm and pick their own produce. Many offer add-ons of specialty items such as eggs, meat, cheese, flowers and other goods. Stop by to meet the farmers, learn about the CSA options and purchase a CSA share. Each grower offers a different program depending on length of season, size of share, prices, goods offered, and drop-off locations. This is the perfect opportunity to explore the CSA options available in Lincoln.
