MEET AND GREET A LOCAL FARMER
Friday, September 2
1 - 3 p.m., 260 Boehm
For over 25 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. In short, the farmer offers a certain number of shares to the public. A share consists of a box of vegetables. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a membership) and in return receive a box of seasonal produce each week at a convenient pickup location throughout the farming season. Red Earth Farm is one of the ONLY CSAs that allows members to custom order items each week. We grow a wide variety of vegetables in Kempton, Pa., while partnering with local farms to offer additional items (i.e. yogurt, cheese, fruit), too. We'd love for you to call 484-955-3817 or visit WWW.REDEARTHFARM.ORG  to learn more about our farm and find a CSA pick up spot closest to you.
