What is a CSA
Community Supported Agriculture (or CSA) is an innovative concept that is reviving family farms across the country and around the world.
In a CSA, the farmer enters into an agreement with a “community” of consumers to supply them with a regular “share” of fresh produce. The consumers pay for this service in advance, and the farmer then grows, harvests, and divides the produce among the “shareholders.”
This concept has proven very rewarding for both the farmer and the community of consumers. The farmer gains some crop "insurance" and marketing "assurance." The "shareholders" gain the satisfaction of knowing they are supporting local, sustainable, family farming. They also feel a closer connection with the land and the farmers who grow their food. And then there’s the food; It’s fresh, organic, and delicious!
