Community Supported Agriculture
High quality, fresh produce
What is the costs?
The costs for a season of CSA is about $450-$650. This price covers 7-10 types of vegetables for a family of about 2-3.
CSA's allow both farmers and consumer to have to take responsibility for things like bad weather or crop destruction. The consumer pays for the farmers upstart for the season and in return gets produce from the farmer. With this system the farmers aren't the sole person who is responsible for bad crop seasons.
CSA's make it possible for farmers to make just as much food as needed. This reduces the amount of waste significantly. This process is great way to cut back on food thrown away and allows for more food to be given to our rising population.
