Community supported aquaculture
what is community supported food?
community supported (agriculture) is an age-old system that creates a direct connection between food producers and consumers within a place. by investing in a farmer and their product through purchase of a farm share, you not only gain a relationship with and an immediate connection to the source of your food, but you are also directly working to give back to your part of our shared planet, all while giving the farmer a little financial boost by paying ahead of time for your food. emily's oysters' farm share offerings aim to continue this simple and intentional means of keeping food local and fresh!
how the oyster CSA works:
order a CSA any time of the year (see details below)
make a plan with emily when you want to pick up or receive a portion of your CSA allotment. oysters are available year round, and can be picked up whenever YOU want them, in whatever quantity from your share that you wish.
pick your oysters up at any of emily's year-round farmer's market locations, or from her home in bath (see market schedule here)
shuck, slurp and smile :)
store oysters in the refrigerator for up to 7 days, or eat immediately!
WHAT IF I DONT KNOW HOW TO SHUCK OYSTERS???
never shucked an oyster before? not sure how to handle them? don't worry. CSAs come with all the tools you need to become a home shucking pro, including a knife, gloves, and instructional resources for how to safely shuck and store your oysters properly. your first pick up or delivery also comes with the option of an in person shucking lesson, and with a little practice, you'll be a pro before you know it! click the button below for a video tutorial in shucking to see how easy it is :)
