CSA Options

CSA stands for Community Support Agriculture. This movement started as a way for farms to share the season-long burden of risk with their community. Farms would ask for a commitment from their local community to invest in the farm to help cover the early season expenses that occur when much has yet to be harvested. Seeds and supplies are bought and employees paid long before the first tomato is picked. In return, these community members would get a portion–commonly referred to as a ‘share’–of the harvest each week throughout the growing season. CSAs have grown and changed over the years to mean many different things, but the basic relationship has stayed the same. As a customer, you provide the farm with payment for future food. This might take the form of a traditional share or as credit in a farm store or market.
