What Is a CSA?

What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way for communities to buy high quality, fresh produce grown locally by regional farmers. A farmer offers farm shares to the public. Shares usually include 7-10 types of vegetables, enough for a family of 2-3 people, with add-on options for other items like fruits and eggs. Interested members purchase a seasonal subscription in advance allowing the farmer to pay for seed, equipment, etc. up front. Hence the “community-supported” part of CSA. 

Throughout the season, members receive a box of seasonal produce straight from the farm. By developing a relationship with the farmer who grows our food, we can learn more about our food. Often members are exposed to new vegetables and find new ways of cooking through the community.
