How does the CSA Work?
You purchase a “bucket” of points that you use every week. 1 point can be looked at in different ways:
1 person 1 pound of meat 1 meal 1 bunch of veggies 1 drink
Use these points to pick out what you want each week. You can order more or less each week, or even skip a week, bank your points, and use your total points as you need too. You’re in control!
You may be frugal and get more pounds per point, or go all out and get high dollar cuts like steak!
Take some time and look through the various CSA categories here to get a feel for what you can do with your points.
By purchasing a CSA, you get guaranteed food all season at a cheaper cost, and you get to pick what you want!
