Getting Fresh With Ross And Sheryl: Farm Gifting And CSAs
Ross Reynolds talks with Sheryl Wiser of the Cascade Harvest Coalition about her favorite gifts from the farm, many of which can be found at local farmers markets — many of which are still open during the winter months.
Her suggestions include preserves, handmade baskets, wreaths, soaps, lotions and honey.
But she says it's important to be cautious about gifting a Community Supported Agriculture subscription. This program allows you to pay a membership to a farm in exchange for a delivery of fresh goods from the farm, like produce or fruit boxes. Although a great program to be involved in, Wiser says that a CSA is as individual as a fingerprint and comes with responsibility for the person receiving it, so make sure to check before signing someone up!
