Local Food Alliance 3 The Johnson County Local Food Alliance (JCLFA) wants to help you get up close and personal with your watermelon. Your spinach. Even your warm, melty cinnamon rolls. Why?

We’re talking strawberries that are still warm from the sun—not chilled into sub- mission from their 2,000 mile journey to your table. HEALTHY. Food that is good for you, good for the land and good for your community, food you can trust. LOCAL. When you buy food from your neighborhood farmer you help build your community. It’s simple: Local purchases help keep money and other resources close to home. SOUND SATISFYING? We think so too, and we want to make it easier for you to get what you want.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) 77 CSAs create “agriculture-supported communities.” Members pay the farmer an annual membership fee to cover the production costs of the farm. In turn, members receive a weekly share of the harvest during the local growing season. The arrangement guarantees the farmer ﬁnancial support and enables many small to moderate scale family farms to remain in business. -Reprinted with permission from “Growing for Market” ECOLLECTIVE CSA SASS FAMILY FARM SCATTERGOOD FRIENDS ZJ FARM AND CSA Derek Roller Maurice Sass SCHOOL FARM Susan Jutz 879 Echo Ave., Mechanicsville 3060 160th St., Riverside Mark Quee Farm Manager 5025 120th St. NE, Solon (319) 325-3910 (319) 648-3788, Daily 11-7 1951 Delta Ave., West Branch (319) 624-3052 or (319) 929-5032 email@example.com www.sassfamilyfarm.com (319) 643-7631 www.zjfarms.com A wide variety of vegetables, fruits and firstname.lastname@example.org www.scattergood.org/farm-prairie email@example.com herbs grown with organic and sustain- Produce stand and country store, as firstname.lastname@example.org Our Community Supported Agriculture able practices are furnished weekly for well as a playground, petting zoo, and An innovative farm featuring grass farm supports our family by growing our twenty week season from May to CSA program.
