Meet Libby Collar, one of our Brand Ambassadors for the 2017 CSA Season: "I joined the CSA through New South Produce Co-Op a few years ago after learning about it from a friend, and it has been the best experience! We had been part of a different CSA and loved picking up our weekly share of local, naturally grown produce. One of the many things I love about New South is the freshness and variety of produce you get, as they source from several different farms across Arkansas. There is just something about bringing home sustainably grown vegetables recently harvested at the peak of ripeness! I’m also looking forward to additional meat, cheese and flower add-ons this season.  After being part of the CSA, I am so excited to be working with the co-op to help educate others on the importance of eating locally and supporting our local farmers. Optimal health depends...
