Farmers promote CSAs at Monona Terrace

Organizers say program is key to eating healthy, eating local

MADISON, Wis. - Local farmers showed off their goods Sunday at the Monona Terrace.

The 21st annual Community Supported Agriculture Open House gave visitors the opportunity to meet with farms that offer regular deliveries of fruits, vegetables, and other specialty items straight to their doorsteps.

Each farm has its own unique CSA program. Organizers said the program is a great way to eat healthy and local.

"Folks right now are learning about what CSA is, what different farms have to offer, and figuring out if it's a good fit for their family for the season to invest in a local farm and get the freshest food available," Fair Share Executive Director Kiera Mulvey said of the open house.

The CSA program currently has more than 25,000 participants who invest in a local farm for the season and receive weekly food deliveries in return.

Mulvey said she expected about 1,000 visitors to stop by the event Sunday.
