Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Get inspired by what's fresh and seasonal.

How a CSA Works

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a membership group that connects farmers directly to buyers. It is a wonderful way to enjoy seasonal fruits and vegetables, eggs, farm made cheese and pasture raised meat, and build a relationship between farmer, food and your family. A farmer charges membership dues to subscribers before the growing season begins, which allows him or her to pay for the seed and labor that must be invested in a crop before he can sell it. During the growing season farmers can then focus on growing and harvesting knowing his produce has already been purchased. As the growing season unfolds, each member of the CSA gets a portion of the seasonal produce, meat and dairy generated on that farm.

Many CSA's give buyers a choice of the size "box" they will receive each week or every 2 weeks. All CSA boxes are filled based on that weeks harvest, however some, but not all, allow buyers to customize based on preferences. CSA's connect consumers with produce, dairy and meat in a number of ways including delivery to your door, pick-up at the farm and pick-up at designated sites in communities.
