What is CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and is a direct to customer model by which consumers buy shares of a farm’s harvest in advance. Consumers become CSA members by paying an agreed amount at the beginning of the growing season, either in one lump sum or in installments.
Why participate in a CSA?
The arrangement of a CSA is a helpful way for farms to receive extra capital upfront for pre-season expenses like buying seeds, tools, raw materials for farm maintenance, and employment cost, to name a few.
A CSA subscription is a great way to receive a healthy food source while supporting your local economy and investing in the environment. Harvested the day prior to distribution, weekly shares are guaranteed to be a highly nutrient-dense product. When you source food locally, small businesses and local economies thrive and the local food movement is encouraged to grow.
