Community Support Agriculture (CSA) means sharing in the local farms’ bounties on a regular basis, typically weekly. A summer’s subscription means fresher produce, less fossil fuels, community development in the form of box drop-off and pick-up sites, and best of all, more life’s work for farmers! The sustenance from these delightfully simple picks brings supreme nourishment for the body in the form of imperfect vegetables and slightly unevenly colored eggs. 

This box was picked up at Eden’s Market — A Gluten Free Emporium in Mt Lebanon, and is put together and distributed by Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance. After scooping it up, we brought it to our studio, emptied it out, and photographed the contents, as is. Here is a list of what comprises this beautiful cornucopia, and where it is sourced.

Swiss Chard and Garlic from Blue Goose Farm
Cucumbers, Sweet Candy Onions, and Herbs from Gid’s Produce
Cucumbers, Patty Pan Squash, and Red Beets from Clarion River Organics
Carrots and New Potatoes from Nu Way Farm
Carmen Peppers from Weeping Willow Farm
Eggs from John Keim and family
