Come down to Burscough Community Farm on Sunday 1st October for a taste of what Community Supported Agriculture is all about.
From 11am-4pm your local CSA farm will be offering farm tours, taster growing sessions, and freshly cooked food grown on site.
We will be just one of the many CSA farms all over the country opening up their doors to the public as part of the CSA Network UK awareness-raising open day.
Have you ever longed to have more control over the way your food is produced? Or wanted to grow vegetables yourself in a way that supports local biodiversity? Or perhaps you like the idea of a healthy outdoor pursuit in the company of friends. This is precisely what CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture) is all about.
‘Community supported agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between farmers and consumers in which the responsibilities, risks and rewards of farming are shared. CSA helps address increasing concerns about the lack of transparency, sustainability and resilience of our food system. It is one of the most radical ways that we can re-take control and ownership of our food system.’…..CSA Network UK
From tending the produce in our market garden, harvesting veg for our weekly boxes or supporting our outreach ventures, there are so many opportunities for people at Burscough Community Farm to help our project continue to flourish. And the beauty of CSA is that, as part of that community of supporters, you also reap the benefits of healthy food, exercise, new skills, and good company.
Curious? Come and pay us a visit. You won’t be disappointed.
