What is CSA  CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture (also known as Community Shared Agriculture) and is a system where individual(s) purchase a membership, or share, of a farmers harvest at the beginning of the season in return for fresh farm produce on a weekly schedule.  Buying in at the the beginning of the season guarantees your share because the farmer knows how much food to grow and has capital to purchase seeds, equipment, amendments, labor etc.  By supporting Community Supported Agriculture you are not only investing in the farmer but you are also investing in the future of your land, your health and building a stronger community by keeping your dollars local.  Help slow down the carbon footprints of fossil fuels and purchase a few local things here and there because every little bit helps.

Purchasing a membership early allows us, the farmers, to plan our plantings accordingly thus creating less waste and because we harvest less, we also use less refrigeration and do less processing.  In the end, it is an economically sound choice to local food and what could be better than a guarantee of bountiful, in season vegetables in your fridge on a weekly schedule.

CSA is an environmentally cautious choice that supports local farmers which benefits your economy and environment.
