Community Supported Agriculture
A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) consists of a community of individuals and families who pledge their support through membership to a small, independent farm. Members, or "shareholders" of the CSA become partners with the grower so that they share in the risks and reap the rewards of responsible farming. Typically, members of the CSA pledge in advance to cover the anticipated costs of the farm operation through the purchase of a "share" which, in exchange, offers them a weekly box of a wide variety of vegetables and herbs grown on the farm. In addition, members achieve the satisfaction of reconnecting to the land and being an active participant in the movement toward supporting locally-grown food.
At its core, a CSA offers a shared commitment that is helping to build an ecologically sound agricultural system that focuses on good stewardship and helps protect the land for future generations.
A single full share box (approximately 1-3/4 grocery bags) is enough to feed a family of 2-4. A partial share box (approximately 1 grocery bag) typically feeds 1-2.
