SPIRIT of JEI ER ON and EM{MER'S ADVOCATE FARM/LEGALS PAGE B7 Wednesda~ [4~bruary 21, 21)18 National event on Friday puts farm offerings in the spotlight SHEPHERDSTOWN - This week's weather may have you thinking about the warm seasons ahead, and ready to make plans for getting summer produce into your kitchen. Taking part in the third-annual Jefferson County Commu- nity-Supported Agriculture Day on Friday can get the process underway. "Community-supported agriculture is all about relationships and feeding families," said Simon Huntley, CEO of Small Farm Central, a Pitts- "burgh-based company that provides market- ing support for small farms and started CSA Day. "CSA farmers typ- ically teach mem- bers what's in season throughout the year and help them appreciate and cook food to which they may not otherwise be exposed." According to Small Farm Central's annual report, the most popu- lar time to join a CSA is at the end of February. To promote this im- portant time, CSA Day was coined for the last Friday in February. Allan and Maura Balliett, owners of Fresh and Local CSA in Shepherdstown, say a CSA membership as a subscription to a growing season's worth of sustainable, locally grown pro- duce that is distributed to members throughout the harvesting l Local, by visiting freshandlocalesa.com or calling 304-433-5441. Another option :is Green Gate Farm; also in Shepherdstown. The number there is 3 -268 1294. season. They're big fans of CSA Day. "It's an entire day dedicated to the celebration of commu- nity-supported agriculture, and CSA farmers enjoy an influx of signups from members, which gives them revenue when they need it most for the growing season," he said. Getting food from a CSA is different from going to a farm market or using a grocery delivery service, Allan Balliett said. Local families who make the commitment can either get a box of fresh food deliv- ered to their doors or pick them up at a lo- cal distribution center, he said. CSA members take pleasure in knowing where and how their food is grown and typi- cally have an open line of communication with their farmer, he said. Allan Balliett said CSA Day also high- lights the importance of "eating healthful foods, being kind to our plan- et, learning something new and being adven- turous in the kitchen.'" CSA memberships are a form of investment that allows small farmers to continue growing on a scale that may not be sustainable without the CSA model, he said.
