Easton Farm Forges Community Links

Community Supported Agriculture continues to gain momentum across the country and here in Fairfield County. CSA programs, such as the one at Sport Hill Farm in Easton, are partnerships between growers and consumers where commit to supporting farms throughout the season in a variety of ways.

Members buy in for a fixed fee, prior to the season. After registering, they pick up their share of the harvest weekly, biweekly or monthly, depending on the predetermined arrangement with the farm. Some farms incorporate a volunteer component to the contract, asking families to set up or break down stands at a pickup location. And according to the folks at the Fairfield Green Food Guide , such requirements are great opportunities to connect with the CSA community, swap recipes and share other culinary ideas.

If a CSA program sounds right for you, there are plenty in Fairfield County still accepting members. Here is a list from the Fairfield Green Food Guide :

? Easton’s Sport Hill Farm .

? Stoneledge Farm in Hudson Valley, N.Y., which makes drops in Stamford, Wilton/Norwalk, Southport and Ridgefield.

? Gazy Brothers Farm in Oxford, serving all of Fairfield County.

? BR Farmstand , a multi-farm CSA serving Black Rock and Fairfield.

? Laurel Ridge Farm , a 100 percent grass-fed beef farm serving Fairfield County.
