Coming this Saturday, February 26th, to Rollinsford is CSA Day at the Winter Farmers’ Market at Wentworth Greenhouses. The Winter Farmers’ Market will feature the opportunity to learn more about CSAs in the Seacoast area and speak directly with CSA farmers, in addition to 40+ producers and vendors offering an array of local food. Community Supported Agriculture offers a terrific way for people to get a steady supply of local food directly from the producers.
• Meet 15+ farmers and fishermen, and learn about CSA share options for the 2011 season
• Talk with farmers about quantity and pre-ordering options for meat and poultry
• Buy a share in a farm’s harvest for the coming season
• Buy a share in a fishing boat’s catch
14 farms + 1 fishery have signed up to participate in CSA Day on February 26th. Collectively, these farms represent over 825 acres in production and in 2011, they are offering a total of 2,135 CSA shares + 790 winter shares. Half of the farms also offer year-round shares or winter share options. The farms range from 2 acres to 340 acres, and cover a wide geographic range.
