What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Shared Agriculture. In a CSA, a farmer grows food for a pre-determined group of consumers who pay an annual fee to purchase their share of the harvest. The risks of a harvest are carried by both the consumer and the farmer. Of course, the bountiful harvests are rewarded accordingly. The rewards of belonging to a CSA are: consumers know that their food is produced local and delivered fresh, CSA encourages small farms to be equitable and sustainable, and dialogue between farmers and consumers grow strong community relations.
