Gratitude for our farmers

At this time of the year, we take a moment to be thankful! We are grateful to the farmers who collaborated with us and provided us with food they lovingly grew. Thanks to them, we were able to preserve over 12,800  pounds of fruits and veggies this harvest season, all grown sustainably, and all prepared by hand. Thanks to these farmers, we can offer over 24 different fruits and vegetables in this year’s CSA.

We highlight a couple of our farms on the “Meet the Growers” page, but here is a complete list of who grew what for Locavorious, and some notes on their practices.
