what is a CSA?
- Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between consumers and producers. Consumers become members of a farm by paying for a share of the harvest before the growing season begins.
- CSA is great for farmers–they acquire capital when they need it most and plant according to consumer demand. CSA is great for members too–they receive a variety of high-quality produce, a good value for their money, and a deeper sense of connection to their food.
- CSA is about great food….and so much more! CSA members invest in the long-term success of a farm and CSA farmers invest in the long-term health of their land and community.
