What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is part of a growing social movement that encourages urban & rural citizens to share responsibility for the land where their food is grown as well as how their food is produced. In simplest terms,

CSA is a partnership between agricultural producers and consumers.

Members or “shareholders” pay a fee at the beginning of the growing season to meet a farm’s operating expenses for the upcoming season. In return, members receive a portion of the farm’s produce each week throughout the growing season. 


 

  A CSA subscriber writes: This past weekend I had cucumbers with a lemon squeeze over top of them and salt sprinkled on them. It was a delightful change from just eating them plain :) We have been using the lettuce as a substitute for bread :) so perfect!
