Prepare for New CSA




Amy Likins and Christian Echele, of Synergy Organic Juice Bar and Café, are starting up a community supported agriculture (CSA) program with several local farmers, including David and Michaela Watson, of Suncrop Farms, in Defuniak. Families will have the ability to order produce and pick up what’s growing locally in the region on a weekly basis.

The CSA is scheduled to launch in the fall, but until then, Synergy will extend its hours on Wednesday nights until 7 p.m. over the summer for a "local market", along with the produce that is available any time the café is open. Bulk and pantry items will be for sale, and the all-organic juice bar will be open, as well.

There are many benefits to choosing food that is grown and prepared in locally. It is fresher, cleaner and uses fewer resources in its production, including fuel, travel time and storage. Plus, there’s the human contact with those that work hard to feed us all.

 

Location: 120 Miraclestrip Pkwy. SE, Ft. Walton Beach. For more information, call 850-865-4919.
