Community Supported Agriculture
CSA and why you need it
What is CSA?
CSAs are a way of getting fresh produce without having to go to the store. Instead, you get products directly from the farm in exchange for supporting the farm, and often the family on the farm, with money and (optionally) work on the farm. The great thing about this is that CSAs are a small community or loosely organized group of customers and farmers. This means that the individual saves money by investing in the farm less than they would buy many groceries from while the farmer profits from multiple investors or supporters.
