What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is part of a growing social movement that encourages urban & rural citizens to share responsibility for the land where their food is grown as well as how their food is produced. In simplest terms,

CSA is a partnership between agricultural producers and consumers.

Members or “shareholders” pay a fee at the beginning of the growing season to meet a farm’s operating expenses for the upcoming season. In return, members receive a portion of the farm’s produce each week throughout the growing season.

Roasted Parmesan Acorn Squash

Acorn squash isn’t just for decoration anymore! You won't believe how easy and delicious this recipe is and it only requires a few ingredients.


cooking spray
1 acorn squash (about 2 pounds)
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup grated Parmesan (1 ounce)


Heat the oven (with oven rack in the middle) to 425°F. Spray a rimmed sheet pan with cooking spray. Using your chef’s knife, shave a thin piece from the side of the squash to prevent the squash from rolling when you halve it.

Trim the ends of the squash and cut it in half (lengthwise) from stem to opposite end. Scoop out the seeds and pulp. Slice into ¾-inch thick half moons.

On the pan, drizzle the squash with the oil and rub to coat evenly. Season with ¼ teaspoon of the salt, â�� teaspoon of the pepper (6 turns on pepper mill) and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan. Turn the squash over and repeat with the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt, 1/10 teaspoon pepper and 2 tablespoons Parmesan.

Roast, without turning, until the squash are golden brown and tender, 35 to 40 minutes.
