Summer is fast approaching and its not too late to sign up for a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) to have direct access to local, fresh and delicious food. Check out some of the CSAs that are available in Queen Village and keep in mind they are no longer just vegetables. Cheese, flowers, eggs, yogurt, fruit, bread, etc.
This is a woman-owned artisan cheese CSA-style subscription. Members can join our cheese club for the Summer season (9 alt-weekly pickups between June 1 and Sept. 21) to receive a two-item (1#) or three-item (1.5#) cheese share of grassfed, handmade cow’s milk cheeses from Birchrun Hills Farm and Valley Milkhouse Creamery. They can also purchase add-on shares of cream-top yogurt and cultured butter. More info here: collectivecreamery.com
