CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) Looking to save on locally grown fruit, veggies, meats cheeses and bread? Consider a farm share! Devon Whitney-Deal, Local Hero Member Services Coordinator, for CISA told us more.
- CSA’s come in a variety of product categories including: the common produce csa, meat, dairy, grain, fruit, malt of the month and even community supported medicine
- Shares come in many different forms: i.e. a box/bag share, visit the farm to pick your share, workplace shares, etc.
- Different payment options — here’s a tip to help spread the cost of the share over pay periods – some farms offer payment plans, UMASS 5 offers an interest free payment plan and some farm accept SNAP payments
- For those that don’t want a regular weekly pick-up I’d like to explain the Farmers’ Market or Farm Stand Share
