{photo diary} CSA FAIR, Troy, NY

I had a lot of fun at NOFA-NY‘s first annual CSA Fair with Michael at the Kilpatrick Family Farm table. I answered basic questions from a share holder’s perspective; what is a CSA? How does it really work? Is the produce good? How is the selection? What if I can’t make it to pick up my share? ect.

I also got to see Justine from Denison Farms and Britin & Nick from All Good Bakers. I also met the folks from Crystal Springs Farm in Ticonderoga, NY and Melinda from Monkshood CSA in Styvesant, NY.  I was excited to see the number of people extremely interested in joining a CSA for the first time. Like we stated on our post, {know your farmer} Join a CSA?, many of us joined for the first time last year and will continue this summer.
