that's literally a mouthful. So we call it LUCSA.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is when a person becomes a supporting member of a farm. Our CSA members receive a weekly delivery of seasonal, fresh produce and organic eggs from our own farms as well as other farms in the Midwest that we partner with to bring you more variety, and them more business.
However, its not only other local farmers that we partner with. We also collaborate with other good food businesses in Chicago to provide you with a well rounded box of food, while supporting other local businesses and growing the local food movement in the process. Our CSA includes kombucha from our neighbor-brewer, bread or granola from nearby bakers, coffee from the roaster down the street and other interesting produce and products. We call it the Local Unified CSA because we collaborate with others in our locality to bring you this interesting and diverse weekly CSA.
