ASAP, in partnership with Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture, will host a Boone CSA Fair featuring family farms offering vegetable, meat, or flower CSAs with designated drop-off or pickup locations in the High Country (Allegheny, Ashe, Avery, Mitchell, Watauga, or Wilkes Counties). This event is FREE and open to the public.
March 21, 4-7 pm
Appalachian Mountain Brewery, 163 Boone Creek Dr.
Fairgoers will have the opportunity to browse different CSA programs and talk directly with farmers about their offerings. Farms will be set up at individual tables like a farmers market and will share information about their CSA programs, including what products they offer, where and when they deliver, and their growing practices. It’s a friendly setting to learn more about your options, or bring your checkbook to subscribe right on the spot! Groups, such as workplaces, churches, or neighborhood associations, are encouraged to attend. Some participating farms will deliver directly to these locations if there is sufficient demand.
Children are welcome to attend the fair. There will be family-friendly activities.
