EAT FRESH FROM THE FARM!
CSA SHARES NOW AVAILABLE

Many CT NOFA member farms now have Fall CSA shares available - but they go fast! CSA members receive a weekly or bi-weekly assortment of seasonal vegetables delivered fresh from the farm. Also, this is a good time of the year to put 'dibs' on a 2017 CSA share. Visit our full list of CT NOFA members with CSAs: http://ctnofa.org/CSAs.htm
