CSA Day Feb. 24 to celebrate small farmers

Published:

Small Farm Central has set the date for CSA Day, an entire day dedicated to the celebration of community-supported agriculture and support of small farmers.

According to Small Farm Central’s CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture) Farming Annual Report, the most popular time to join a CSA each year is at the end of February. To promote this important time for farmers, CSA Day was coined, and each year it falls on the last Friday in February – this year Feb. 24.

“At Small Farm Central, we equip farmers with the technology tools they need to succeed, and CSA Day is a great example of how we work together to get the community excited about convenient, fresh, local food,”said Simon Huntley, CEO of Small Farm Central.

Small Farm Central has a variety of tools for farmers at no cost:

  • Sign up for CSA Day updates and exclusive content brought to you by Small Farm Central at csaday.info.
  • Post your CSA for free on the CSA directory by completing this form.
  • Celebrate by using the hashtag #CSADay on social media.

“CSA members are like-minded individuals who enjoy feeding their family, while supporting their local farmer,” said Huntley. “If farmers use our tools to help spread the word about CSA Day, they should benefit from new and returning CSA members this year.”
