A group of families in the Lakes Region are pooling their resources to create their own CSA. By combining, they are able to buy in bulk from several small farms in the area to supply all the fresh produce and baked items they need. The group will be functioning through their website, www.BigBanana.org. Participants pay through the website before Tuesday and on Saturday they can go and pick their food up at the distribution site. The first distribution day will be Saturday, May 15, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. at the Franklin Savings Bank in Gilford. Which means the cutoff for purchasing “baskets” for the first day is Tuesday, May 11 by 10:00 p.m.
Visit their website to learn more. There’s an easy frequently asked questions page, a list of their growers and producers, as well as all the information you need to join, if you live in the Lakes Region.
