Supporting The Organic Farmer
Written by Karen Wachsmuth
Abundant Harvest Organics has provided the community of the Santa Clarita Valley with seasonal organic, California grown CSA produce boxes for over four years. What this has done is brought the farm closer to our community, which means fresh. Since Abundant Harvest Organics is a CSA - “Community Supported Agriculture,” those that support buying their weekly produce crate are helping to support the local California farmer and contributing to sustainability for our good ol Mother Earth!
Abundant Harvest Organics is an alliance of small family farmers in Central California dedicated to growing superior organic produce and getting it to you in the simplest manner possible—and without the use of chemicals or packaging material. Vernon Peterson, a five generation farmer, and the owner of Abundant Harvest Organics packs the produce crates bi-weekly on his farm in Central California. The produce crates are trucked to our community on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The community has a choice to either select a site to meet at to pick up the produce crate or they can select a delivery site, and have the produce crate delivered to their home or business.
Joining this CSA is easy and it’s a healthy way to fuel the body, support the community and our California farmers. To find out more about Vernon Peterson and AbundantHarvest Organics go to www.abundantharverstorganics.com
