It isn’t too late to sign up for a multi-farm CSA box from LINC Foods, or the Local Inland Northwest Cooperative.
The LINC Box costs $25 per week and includes six to eight locally, sustainably grown fruits and vegetables as well as a customized recipe by Pantry Fuel.
Add-ons – loaves from Culture Breads, organic grass-fed milk from Pure Eire Dairy, free-range eggs from EGA Farms and JP’s Chicken Farm, locally roasted, fair trade, shade-grown, organic coffee from Roast House – can be included for an extra cost.
So can pastured protein from Lazy R Ranch, Scablands Farm, Heron Pond Farms, Nash’s Chickens and Bah Bah Blacktail Farm as well as cheese from Brush Creek Creamery, Laurel’s Crown, Kelley Creek Farm and Quillisascut Farm – just to name a few.
Weekly add-ons range in price from $3.50 for a half gallon of milk to $12 for coffee beans. Cheese and protein are $20 and $30, respectively, every other week.
Customers can pick up their boxes in Cheney, Spokane, Liberty Lake and Coeur d’Alene. The LINC Box season runs from the first week of June through Thanksgiving.
CSA stands for community-supported agriculture.
