What is CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, fresh, seasonal food direct from a farmer. The farmer offers a certain number of shares to the public. Interested consumers purchase a share (membership) and in return receive a basket of seasonal produce weekly throughout the growing season.
Advantages for consumers:
• Eat fresh food, full of flavor and nutrition
• Get exposed to new vegetables and new ways of cooking
• Have a relationship with the farmer who grows their food and learn how the food is grown
• Children will likely enjoy the food they get from their farmer
Advantages for farmers:
• Receives payment early in the season, which helps purchase seeds and plants before field work begins
• Gets to know the people he’s growing food for
In most CSAs, members pay up front for the whole season and the farmer does his best to provide an abundant basket of produce each week. As part of a CSA community, members share the risks, such as crop failure due to uncontrollable circumstances, with the farmer. Most CSA farmers feel a great sense of responsibility to their members, for all the support and trust of their members, and will make sure their CSA members are a priority.
