From my in box:
There's a new CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) opportunity in town ...
Tahoma Farms is a new CSA opportunity in town. Community Supported Agriculture is a way to directly link farms with customers. CSA "members" purchase a share of the farm's harvest in advance of the growing season, when the farm incurs the bulk of its costs. In exchange for this "seed" money, members enjoy fresh packed boxes of farm produced every week during the growing season. CSA members enjoy a weekly selection of what the farm has to offer.
The 2009 season: will run for 18 weeks, from June 29-Oct. 26; pickup days are Thursdays in Tacoma or on the farm, from 4-7 p.m. (you can also have your share delivered for a $5 per week surcharge through their sister company, Terra Organics); cost is $450 for the season, based on a $25 average value per box; storage share of squash, potatoes and root crops available the 1st week of November for $50.
For details: call or e-mail Kim Hulse at (253) 376-8604 or firstname.lastname@example.org. www.tahomafarms.com
