Sign Up a Friend Initiative – for existing members

If you sign up a friend for the coming contract year, you’ll receive $40 worth of selected products (depending on what Keith has each month), either all at once or spread out over the year. Tell this person to write “referred by” and your name at the bottom of their contract, and Keith will make note of this $40 product-credit on your “account.”

Do you know…
… where your food comes from?
… how it was grown and raised?
… if chemicals were used?
… whether it was genetically modified, fairly traded or sustainably produced?
… how long it was in transport and storage or if it was in contact with any contaminants?

Food security is a huge issue and the list of questions just keeps growing.

One of the best ways to get sustainable, eco-friendly, non-toxic, healthy food is through Community Shared Agriculture (CSA)—a system that provides a direct link between the production and consumption of food.
