CSA - Community Supported Agriculture

For over 25 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer.


Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of "shares" to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a "membership" or a "subscription") and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.

Advantages for farmers:

  • Get to spend time marketing the food early in the year, before their long days of planting and harvesting begin

  • Receive payment early in the season, which helps with the farm's cash flow

  • Have an opportunity to get to know the people who eat the food they grow

  • Cuts out the middleman and allows farmers to keep more of the profit from their harvest

Advantages for consumers:
  • Eat ultra-fresh food, with more flavor and vitamin benefits that transported produce

  • Get exposed to new vegetables and new ways of cooking

  • Find that kids typically favor food from "their" farm - even veggies they've never been known to eat

  • Develop a relationship with the farmer who grows their food and learn more about how food is grown

  • Increase local availability of fresh produce and supports local agriculture
