A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a seasonal membership for a weekly supply of fresh produce. It offers a chance to support a local farm and, by extension, a local community, and at the same time get the farm’s freshest produce.
Audubon Community Nature Center is offering a service to the community and supporting Audubon members and long-time local organic farmers Mike and Donna Eisenstat.
The Eisenstats own Toboggan Hill Farm near Westfield, N.Y. Their CSA members receive a weekly box of produce that includes a wide variety of items, from asparagus to zucchini. A complete list of what was offered last year can be found at TobogganHillFarm.com.
Share pick-ups at Audubon, one of several pick-up locations, are on Fridays, 1-4:30 p.m. They will continue weekly through the end of October.
For more information on how to sign up for your CSA share, email email@example.com or call (716) 326-2060. Learn more at Facebook.com/TobogganHillFarm.
