Community Supported Agriculture, as they state at Local Harvest, “has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer… A farmer offers a certain number of ‘shares’ to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a ‘membership’ or ‘subscription’) and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.”
The Bring It Food Hub model is similar to that, but we source produce from multiple farmers. Our CSA subscription, is a weekly bag of local fruits, vegetables and occasional staples such as rice. This produce subscription is then delivered to a convenient pick up location near you.
At Bring It Food Hub we work with over a dozen local farmers within a 150 mile range of Memphis. We also work with Urban Farm of Memphis and this year we will be sourcing from GrowMemphis community gardens.
We offer cheese, bread, eggs and flower shares that can be added on to your subscription and received each week with your produce CSA. We also offer various value-added items, meats, coffee and grains that can be bought online in our webstore for delivery with your produce subscription.
So it’s going to a big year for us all as we try new produce and recipes. Like one CSA member said, “I can’t wait to see what I get each week. It’s like a big bag of surprises just for me!”
