Is our CSA for you? We at The Gentleman Farmer do our best to curate a beautiful variety of produce for you throughout the arc of an entire growing season. If you do not cook seasonally you may find a need to supplement your CSA share from the grocers at times. Joining a CSA encourages further exploration of seasonal recipes, a connection with your farmer and your food and an oppotunity to be part of a community that supports independant, small scale farming. You may receive a lot of one particular crop if it does really well or none of another if it fails completely. However, it can be a fun adventure for the entire family as well as for your tastebuds!
