2021 Virtual CSA Fair
March 20 - April 3
2021 marks the 20th anniversary of Seward Co-op’s annual Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Fair!
Join us in a virtual celebration of farms that provide our community with delicious food throughout the growing season.
March 20 – April 3 we will be featuring 30 local CSA farms here on our website and on social media, showing what life has been like at the farms this past year and the adaptations farmers have had to make. We provide all the information for you to choose a CSA in 2021 that works for you and your household. Some farms allow customization of CSA shares, and there is a variety options to fit your needs (half-shares, weekly purchase options, etc.)
The past year has been challenging and rewarding for small-scale farms. Despite being absolutely vital to our food system, farmworkers are often first and most profoundly affected by crisis and supply chain disruption. This year, Seward Co-op is a partner of Student Action with Farmworkers, and we support their efforts around National Farmworkers Awareness Week (NFAW). Happening March 25–31, NFAW is a week of action for community members to raise awareness about farmworker issues in our communities. Learn more about NFAW and how you can support farmworkers at https://saf-unite.org/national-farmworker-awareness-week/.
During this time of crisis and supply chain disruption, we need community-based farmers and producers more than ever. Invest in the people who grow and harvest our food. In addition to shopping at the co-op, Community Supported Agriculture offers individuals and families a direct way to support local growers.
