What is a CSA?  Where can I buy maple syrup? What is Map-o-licious?
Berkshire Grown's March 2016 News
Support a local farmer: Buy a share in a farm.

What is a CSA?  CSA Farms are member supported - you can buy a share in a farm today - February 26th, national CSA DAY. CSA farms (CSA = Community Supported Agriculture) are ways for farmers to raise the funds ahead of the season when they need support to buy seeds and equipment and make plans for the growing season. Then you as a member will pick up your share at the farm starting at the beginning of the season every week throughout the summer.
