Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
Check out the four CSA’s below who have the capacity to deliver to the Cornell campus.
Cornell Wellness is working with Cornell Cooperative Extension to help our employees eat more healthfully, our farmers to reach more people with local foods, and to benefit our community in general. In addition to on campus deliveries, there are many CSA’s in our area that might have pick up locations closer to your home, too.
