What is a CSA?
Community– Supported Agriculture or CSA, is an arrangement that provides a direct connection between consumers and a local farm. Supporters contribute to the farms yearly operating budget by purchasing a share of the season’s harvest in advance. By making this commitment ahead of time CSA shareholders join the farmer in assuming the cost and rewards of growing the season’s crops. Shareholders help pay for seed, supplies, labor, and equipment. In return, the farm provides a weekly basket, of fresh, nutritious produce throughout the harvest season (June – October).
