Eaton Corporation CSA

A Joint Project of Foothills Farmers’ Market and Eaton Kings Mountain’s Wellness & Green Teams

We’re working to make fresh, locally-grown foods available to Eaton employees. Local farmers will soon begin providing fresh fruits & vegetables for The Mountain Café. In addition, we’re extending the Foothills Farmers’ Market CSA Program to employees who want to purchase fresh, locally-grown food for personal use.

The Foothills Farmers’ Market CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture) Program is a “subscription” program in which customers make a pledge of support to local farmers by paying in advance for a portion of their harvest. Your “share” of the harvest will be a delivered to you at your workplace.

Keep watch for participation details!

The items you’ll find in your box will also be incorporated into delicious, healthy meals served at The Mountain Café. To inspire you in the kitchen, Chef Ben Thayer will be creating easy-to-prepare recipes featuring these items, and those recipes will be shared in print and on Plant Headlines.

The contents of your box will be different each week, but here is an example of what you might find in a typical box:

• 1 pound green pepper
• 1 pound local onions
• 6 ears of sweet corn
• 2 pounds of vine-ripened tomatoes
• 1 pound of cucumbers
• 1 pound of eggplant
• 2 pounds of yellow & zucchini squash
• 1 jar of homemade blackberry jam
• 1 loaf of fresh-baked sourdough bread
• 1 bulb of garlic
• 1 cantaloupe
