The first time that I visited a CSA was in Colorado. It was so nice to be able to pick your own fruits, veggies, and flowers. I loved being a part of small business and the community. I have been meaning to sign up for a CSA here in the Hudson Valley and have my choice of organic products locally.

CSA standing for Community Supported Agriculture. The name makes perfect sense to what the benefits are. This takes place on a farm in which members can stop by to gather or pick up their fresh fruits, veggies and more. This helps the local farms, community, and businesses. You can also gain knowledge of where your food comes from as well. Prices vary on location.

Here is a list of CSAs to visit in the Hudson Valley.

The Farm Bridge, Kingston
