CSA

What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. When you join a CSA, you are essentially buying a farm share. Members (you) pay in advance for a growing season so farmers have operating capital. During the growing season, members receive a box of produce from the CSA on a regular schedule.

Some CSA shares are delivered directly to your home, and others must be picked up from a designated location during a set time frame. Most CSAs only offer produce, but depending on the farm, you may also have the option of purchasing a share that includes eggs, meat, dairy, baked goods, fresh flowers, or other farm products.

Why join a CSA?

There are a lot of reasons to join a CSA and buy a share in a farm’s harvest. Some people join for the amazingly fresh food. Some people enjoy the connection to a specific farm and farmer. Others just want to support their local food system and are looking for a simple one-stop way to do so.
