Community-supported agriculture (CSA) is a great way to invest in our farmers and support our local food economy.

What is a CSA? A CSA farm sells subscriptions or memberships and participants pay up front for an allotment of shares over a period of time, generally once per week for 14 to 20 or more weeks. Costs vary, depending on the products in the share and the number of deliveries included. Shares are typically delivered to a drop site, and CSA farms often have special opportunities for on-farm activities, weekly newsletters and other membership
benefits.

Why Participate? CSAs are perfect for busy schedules and is a great way to add variety and inspire new recipes. For the farmer, CSAs offer stability. Because members purchase subscriptions ahead of time, the farmer can plan crops and respond to unexpected weather conditions, if needed. The shared risk between member and farmer is what creates a sense of community and a stronger connection to the farm.

Lots of Options: There are many types of CSA models offering everything from fresh produce to value added products.

Sign up now: Memberships are filling up quickly at this time of year so be sure to do your research and find the CSA that works well for you.
