Fall and Winter 2021 CSA Boxes

Written by Casey Willson, Fair Farms Intern 

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) boxes are one of the best ways to give direct support to your local farmers. When you purchase a subscription, or share, you receive a regularly scheduled box of local produce, products, or meat – depending on the box and farm you choose. Many of our Fair Farms partners offer CSA box options year round so you can have access to delicious and local food all 12 months of the year. Consuming local, seasonal produce is good for you, your community, and the environment! There are many great Fall and Winter CSA’s available from our partners – but here are just a few that we’re really excited about!

This is a customizable CSA that you can choose to receive either weekly or bi-weekly. There are multiple, convenient pick-up locations around Baltimore and you can even add on specialty items like bread, eggs, flowers, and fruits from local vendors.

Owls Nest Farm

This Winter CSA means you’ll get fresh produce all through the long winter months! Pick up is at their farm in Prince George’s County which means every week you’ll get to meet the hands that grow the food. You can also add on eggs, mushrooms, and grains to your box each week.
