COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE (CSA)

Community Supported Agriculture consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes the community’s farm, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production. CSA aims to close the gap between the farmer and consumer, as consumers purchase locally grown food directly from the farmer. During the process, consumers get to know the farmer, learn how the vegetables are grown and develop the peace of mind that they are financially supporting the local economy while providing their families with fresh, healthy food.

BENEFITS OF COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE
  • Community Supported Agriculture contributes to a healthy local economy.
  • CSA farms connect farms with the urban and suburban communities.
  • They provide local families with a feeling of control over products their family members eat.
  • CSA farms provide families with fresh, healthy food.

HOW DOES IT WORK? Consumers become members by purchasing a seasonal plan in advance, and in turn receive fresh, healthy produce every week. Because of the nature of the business, members of a CSA farm can only get produce the farmer can successfully grow.
