WHAT IS A CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture is a program that directly links local farmers and the consumer. Consumers pre-purchase a share of the farm’s harvest for the upcoming season. This allows for the farmer to better plan the amount needed for the community thereby lowering waste and costs. CSA members share the risk with the farmer which in turn reduces seasonal loans and cost.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
There are many benefits to participating in a CSA. Some are listed here below:
HOW IT WORKS?
You the consumer purchase a share. Shares are available in full or half sizes. Your share entitles you to a wide variety of vegetables each week which you will pick-up at the farm. The items will be the in season item from that week. For an example a late spring box might include lettuce, radishes and scallions while a box in the early fall might contain tomatoes, winter squash and corn. Contents of the box will be based on retail price of the product and will have the equivalent of $31.25 in weekly produce for a full share and $15.65 in a half share of weekly produce. Multiple shares may be purchased to accommodate larger families or sharing with family and friends.
