“CSA Fair and Film
Saturday, March 21, 2015

CSA Fair: 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Cornell Cooperative Extension

Canandaigua, NY 14424

If you are looking to eat the freshest produce, support local agriculture and join in the locavore movement, a CSA might be just for you! CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and is a popular way for consumers to buy fresh, local, seasonal products (ex. vegetables, fruit, meat, herbs, eggs, bread, etc.) directly from local farms. Members purchase shares of the harvest which can vary in contents, size, cost, the number of weeks they are available and where they are picked up. You can learn all about it at a free CSA Fair hosted by CCE-Ontario County.

The screening of the documentary film “Dirty Work: The Story of Elsie’s Farm” will be shown from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm. The film documents a year in the life of an organic farm and CSA run by a couple whose dream is to take an old farm, invest it with new ideas and grow a community. Jarret Winum of Maplestone Farm CSA will be on hand to answer questions from the audience and add his own personal account of his CSA in Stanley.

From 2:30 pm-4:30 pm, 7 farms will be set up to showcase their CSAs, answer questions, and take sign-ups.

Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Ontario Local Food Educator, Hope Galens will be preparing dishes for participants to sample using ingredients sourced by these farms.

It’s a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon and to meet some of the amazing farmers we have here in Ontario County!
