KidsOutAndAbout's Big List of CSAs In and Around Hartford

Below, you'll find links for CSA's in and around Hartford, CT

Families purchase shares (or half-shares, or bimonthly shares) of produce that is either picked up or delivered to them, fresh from the farm, each week during the growing season. Some farms encourage pick-your-own, in some you get to help out on the farm. What a great field-to-table lesson for the whole family!
