Whether it’s food, or craft beer, or paper shredding services, sourcing locally and knowing who and where her products and services come from is important to Chris Dilla.

It’s one of the reasons that the Bocktown Beer and Grill owner has teamed up with Conover Organic Farm in Burgettstown to offer fresh, local ingredients at her restaurants, and a CSA program to the communities around them.

A CSA, as farm owner Jeff Conover explains it, is like buying a little piece of a farm.

CSA members, or friends as Conover and his family call them, sign up and pre-pay during early spring, in exchange for a weekly delivery of fresh produce and other products throughout the rest of spring, summer and fall. A full “share” feeds a family of four or more and costs $550, and a partial share feeds two people and costs $300.

To kick off the CSA program, Dilla will host a meet-and-greet with Jeff and Diana Conover from 6 to 8 p.m. April 4 at Bocktown Monaca. The public will have the opportunity to learn about the farm and the CSA, as well as place an order and enter a raffle.  The subscription deadline is May 1, but membership is filling up quickly. Sign up today.
