this was actually an idea from fellow Master Food Preserver and friend Ernest Miller, who thought this could be an additional service for those already in a CSA program (PS to find out what a CSA is, click here).
so, what am i still talking about, what is a CSAG?
members of the CSAG will receive a monthly or bi-monthly basket containing a number of preserved goods. at least 6 jars but up to 10 of items like: apple butter, pickles, jams, salsas/condiments, but also dried foods or salted items (beef jerky??). all made from local, organic ingredients. just like a regular CSA, you would pick up this "basket" with your other fresh items or they can be available at drop-offs at farmers' markets.
ideas floating around right now are to have subscriptions start at $60 a month, with a 3 month (time) period.
