A Celebration of Local Products
Lost River CSA is a celebration of local products. The CSA brings together local consumers and local producers to share in the bounty of Orange County, Indiana.
Through their purchasing decisions, Lost River customers declare their shared values about choosing healthy food, support of local producers and growing a sustainable community. By shopping at Lost River, you already support Community Supported Agriculture.
Over the last two years, Lost River has increased its role as aggregator and distributor, gathering produce and products from our local vendors and putting them together to create a unique weekly CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box. Your weekly box will combine products from a variety of producers and specialty vendors. View it as an explosion of freshness and local bounty. This year we are taking things one step further bringing on a baker and egg farmers to offer Artisan bread and local egg add-ons!
The weekly CSA will pre-contract with local producers for products throughout the season. It allows producers to plan their harvests and count on their sales before their plants are in the ground.
So what's in a weekly box?
Weekly boxes will contain salad greens, vegetables and root vegetables and local fruit when available. Full-share members will also receive a selection of local meat, local syrup or honey, eggs or value added products made by the deli staff. This will be products such as pesto, salsa, zoodles or a deli meal.
The Lost River CSA partners with local growers such as The Crossing, Living Roots, several Amish farms with whom we have been doing business with for several years, John Hoffman, Fleenor Farms, Hall Family Farm plus producers such as Ian McSpadden, Dave Woodsmall, Paoli High School Ag Program and Allen Farmer, beef producer.
As always your CSA local box will contain tips and recipes on how to use your local bounty. CSA boxes will be available for pick up on Thursday in West Baden, Mitchell or Bedford or on Fridays in Crawford Co or at Lost River Market and Deli in Paoli.
