Boomerang Bakery here in Monroe is offering a new option for bakery goods lovers this year. Modeled on the CSA option for produce and meats, their new Bakery Shares program gives baked goods lovers 20 weeks of fresh bakery goods for one set price. Pay in advance or on a payment plan, and receive weekly deliveries of fresh baked bread, cookies, desserts and/or granola. The community supported model is a win-win for both producer and consumer. Consumers can easily line up their local foods purchases for weeks in advance and insure a supply of fresh, delicious food with a minimum of effort.
