CSA is short for community-supported agriculture, a way for people to connect to a local farm to receive fresh meat, produce, or other foods local farmers provide. Most often this involves paying a membership fee and then paying per bag or box of food weekly or monthly, depending on desired frequency. The items are then picked up at the farm or other designated locations. The Crème de la Crème team invites you to discover the local CSAs in and around Lone Tree, Colorado.
