Michigan is the second most agriculturally diverse state in the nation, and northern Michigan is the growing heart of that bounty. It’s driving our culinary scene and, if you make your plans now, you can get that locally grown goodness every week in the form of a CSA. “CSA” stands for “Community Supported Agriculture” and CSA Farms of Northwest Michigan writes:
Members sign up for a share of a particular CSA farm’s harvest during the growing season. They pay in advance which supports their farmer and reserves their “share” of freshly harvested farm produce. The share costs vary from farm to farm and often depend on variables like length of the season and products offered. Members receive weekly boxes, or come to the farm to pick up a wide variety of vegetables and fruits.
Most summer CSAs start in June, and we’ve got contact and share information for as many as we could find. If you know of one we forgot, email us the share details and contact or post a comment and we’ll add them!
