Local CSAs offer meat, fish, eggs, and chickens

Everyone knows you can fill your vegetable bin with the bounty of Community Supported Agriculture, the program in which customers pay up front for a season of vegetables and fruits. CSA members often joke about the mountains of kale or other greens in their sacks and what to do with the abundance.

Now an increasing number of growers are selling shares for the protein portion of the plate. Options include grass-fed beef and pork from Austin Brothers Valley Farm in Belchertown, poultry from Apple Street Farm in Essex, eggs from Stony Brook Valley Farm in Granby, and fish straight from the Gulf of Maine via Gloucester-based Cape Ann Fresh Catch.
