Community Supported Agriculture
What is community supported agriculture?
Community supported agriculture is a system that connects the producer and consumers within the food system more closely by allowing the consumer to subscribe to the harvest of a certain farm or group of farms. The average distance that food travels from farm to consumer in the United States is approximately 1,300 miles. An advantage of obtaining food locally is that the money stays within the local community.
A CSA involves consumers who support a farmer financially by paying for a share of the farm's production prior to each growing season. The arrangement allows farmers to buy the seeds, transplants, and other inputs they need for the growing season, and pay their farm labor without waiting until harvest to generate revenue. A benefit for our consumers who become involved in a CSA is that they can develop a long-term relationship with their local farmer, eat locally polinatted produce, learn where their food comes from and how its grown.
