So we are happy to receive the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) delivery on a regular basis from local organic farm Red Root Farm. So happy that we meant to photograph it every week this spring but basically got so busy eating all the deliciousness that the effort fell apart (also the cat kept trying to eat the CSA, being a herbivore at heart, so it was increasingly in our interest to put it away immediately upon receipt).
If you’re interested in getting in on the next round of the CSA, now’s your chance. Red Root Farms farmer Gary Weil has sent around the letter with subscription information, which you can download here (it’s a PDF). Basically, here’s the deal:
- There are 60 shares available for the next CSA. The delivery will last for 15 weeks, with a delivery once a week. It will last from the beginning of October until the last part of February.
- The total price (for 15 weeks of certified organic produce) is $375.00. The first third is due as a deposit, and you’re to send the remaining thirds in each of the next two months.
- Your delivery, if you’re in Montgomery, is at El Rey’s, and pickup is Tuesday after 12.
- If you want to reserve a share, or if you have questions, call Gary at 243-4072. Or you can mail your deposit check to Red Root Herb & Vegetable Farm, 9286 Hwy 29 N., Banks, AL, 36005.
