CSA Information

What is a CSA?

For over 25 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, fresh, seasonal food directly from a farmer.

Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of "shares" to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a "membership" or a "subscription") and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.

What are the Benefits of a CSA?

There are a lot of reasons to join a CSA and buy a share in a farm's harvest. Some people join for the amazingly fresh food. Some people enjoy the connection to a specific farm and farmer. Others just want to support their local food system and are looking for a simple one-stop way to do so. Here are a few other benefits:

  • You know exactly where your food comes from. ...

  • The food tastes better. ...

  • Freshly picked produce is more nutritious. ...

  • Produce is free from harmful chemicals. ...

  • Your overall diet will be healthier. ...

  • CSA's save you money. ...

  • CSA's save you time. ...

  • You get the chance to try new foods.

 

 The benefits are endless. One thing is for certain, CSA members get the best of the best that a farm has to offer.
