What is Community Supported Agriculture?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a mutually beneficial partnership between local farmers and community members. In advance of the season, members buy a share of the upcoming harvest, providing the farmer with the funds needed to cover the costs of operation. In return for their investments, members receive a weekly share of freshly harvested produce. In this commitment, CSA members share with the farmer both the bounty and the risks involved with farming.
