What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a system of growing and distributing locally grown produce that restores the link between farmers and the surrounding communities.
Before the season starts, you purchase a "share" of the year's harvest from a local farm. CSA "shareholders" pay for their produce at the beginning of the growing season, providing the necessary start-up funds for farmers to purchase seeds, supplies and soil amendments.
Your local farmer gains a healthy, economically viable farm business, and you the consumer receives affordable, fresh, healthy locally grown food.
