Community Supported Agriculture


What is CSA?

Community Support Agriculture is a program that lets consumers buy food straight from local farms! Farmers offer shares to the public and people buy these shares and receive them each week during a seasonal period. These "shares" are boxes of fresh vegetables that are in season.

For farmers, they get to market food and have somewhat of a social hour before they work 16 hours in the field. CSA also gives them the advantage to receive an early payment that is separate from the actual crop season.
For consumers, They get to eat very fresh food, get exposed to new varieties of vegetables, get to visit the farm, and develop a relationship with the farmers and learn about how their food is grown.
