Community Supported Agriculture (“CSA”)
What is CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture is a mutually beneficial relationship between a farm and the community of people who receive the food the farm produces. Members commit to a full season of produce prior to the start of the growing season and in return receive a weekly share containing an assortment of fresh, nutritious vegetables. The members become a part of the farm’s local food community, develop a relationship with the farm, and learn about the origins of their food and how it is grown. In addition, members agree to share in the inherent rewards and risks of the agricultural season. The arrangement contributes to the viability of small scale local agriculture and allows the farm to purchase seeds and supplies, fix equipment, and pay employees early in the season.
