By now you probably already have a great community-supported-agriculture (CSA) share membership with one of your favorite local farms. But community supported agriculture goes beyond just fresh vegetables. Many Colorado farmers, brewers, bakers and artisans have started their own CSA programs. From biweekly packages of organic meat to weekly bouquets of fresh flowers, Colorado’s farmers have you covered. We’ve rounded up some of the oddest – yet coolest – CSA subscriptions in the area, so you can celebrate CSA day and support local artisans.
