When you say "Community Supported Agriculture" - people think of fresh veggies from the farm - like the Jones Farm CSA here in Chelmsford. But there are other kinds of CSAs. I belong to a CSA where the product is wool yarn and fiber. It's Foxfire Fiber at Springdelle Farm in Shelburne, MA. They have a flock of about 80 sheep, from which they produce high quality yarn and fiber for spinning (see the accompanying photos to see samples). The yarn/fiber is distributed through the CSA, at various shows, and online.
This past weekend, they held the annual "Strolling of the Lambs" where members of the CSA get to visit the farm, take a tour, and see the new lambs and their mothers. In addition to the adorable lambs, three of my favorite creatures at the farm are the llamas. They are guard llamas -- watching over and protecting the flock. [One of the llamas was a rescue llama -- read more about his story here.] For more pictures, see my blog.
CSAs are a great way of supporting and maintaining small, local farms -- and they're not just for veggies!
