We're planning the third season of our popular CSA at The Smithy. A traditional CSA only gives members access to produce from one farm and often restricts options to a set box every week, picked up at a set time. The Smithy CSA gives members access to a wide variety of produce, herbs, mushrooms and flowers grown on our local farms (most of which follow organic practices), including Wild Carrot Farm, Arethusa Gardens, Earth's Palate, Deeply Rooted Farms, Ox Hollow Farm, Starberry Farm, Sloane Farm and others.
Customers can purchase a large or small share and will then have the ability to shop for all of their local produce at a discount, any time that is convenient for them. This gives members the opportunity to support multiple local farms at a time when farmers need it most, while still allowing members the convenience of shopping when they want, for exactly what they want. Produce availability will be updated on the homepage of our website weekly. Members have the ability to call or email The Smithy and have specific items set aside especially for them, or ask to have a basket made up and ready for them at their desired pickup time. They can also just come in and choose what looks best!
The Smithy CSA is the perfect CSA for weekenders, those who travel during the growing season, and picky eaters as it allows for flexibility and customization while still providing the goodwill that comes with supporting local farms. It also maximizes convenience for customers as they can grab their local milk, eggs, bread, meat, and other goods along with their produce and be stocked up with everything for their kitchen, all sourced from within 70 miles (often much closer).
