Shares often change in size through out the season. At the beginning of the season shares are smaller reaching an apex mid-season, then slowly winding down in the fall. CSA shares are a great replacement for a visit to the grocery store and help reduce your decision making while supporting your local farmer. You can rest easy knowing they grew the best, freshest, cleanest food they can just for you and the community!
