Southwest Iowa residents are invited to invest in a local Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) share. CSA’s provide members with fresh, locally-grown vegetables and other food products through a seasonal membership. Typically the cost is paid upfront before the season begins, and members will receive a box full of the freshest produce available each week.
CSA’s members get to know exactly where their food comes from, how it is grown, and who is growing it. CSA’s also boost the local economy, as the food is grown nearby and the payment goes directly to the local farmer. CSA’s offer a variety of produce options throughout the season, and are a great option for people who love to cook and try new recipes.
CSA’s offered in Southwest Iowa include:
• Loess Hills CSA Carson – Hancock, Iowa (collaboration between Botna Burrow and Old Tree Farm, Pottawattamie County)
• Rolling Acres Farm (Cass County)
• Iowana Farm (Pottawattamie County)
• Nishnabotna Naturals (Pottawattamie County)
• Rhizosphere Farm (Harrison County)
