Across the country there is a chance for the whole family to find out more about community supported agriculture (CSA) on open days in Autumn.

Many CSAs are experiencing a bumper harvest despite this year's extreme weather conditions, so their members are enjoying gluts of tomatoes, courgettes and sweetcorn. If you join your local CSA farm you can help fight the war on waste, as you'll use less plastic and eat more wonky veg.

Some of the events this year include harvest meals, farm tours, apple pressing, animal feeding, potato digging, squash harvesting, children's games, as well as music and other entertainment, tea and cake, and lots more.

Community supported agriculture is a radical approach to the production and supply of food that builds strong, close and mutually beneficial partnerships between communities and producers. The most common produce for CSA farms is vegetables, but they can also include fruit, eggs, meat, dairy produce, bread and honey. Farmers receive a more stable and secure income and closer connection with their community, and consumers benefit by eating fresh healthy local food, feeling more connected to the land where their food is grown and learning new skills.

Sustain campaigns for a food and farming policy which benefits the environment, health, animals and farmers.
