Band of Farmers Will Assist in Finding Local Produce




Band of Farmers: The Chicagoland CSA Coalition makes it easy to find a community supported agriculture (CSA) program that best fits individual needs. Their website offers tools that include a CSA directory, an interactive pickup site map, factors to consider, frequently asked questions and tips to create a pickup site if none exists close by.

A CSA creates a direct relationship with a local farm in which members subscribe to receive a portion of their harvest. This usually takes the form of a weekly box of vegetables delivered nearby or may also include meats, eggs or fruit. Other benefits include receiving fresh, nutrient-dense foods grown close to home, learning about the joys and challenges of a local farm and keeping food dollars in the local economy.
