Community Supported Agriculture is a farm or association of multiple farms that offers regular (usually weekly) deliveries of locally-grown farm products during one or more harvest seasons on a subscription or membership basis. Community Supported Agriculture is a unique approach to bringing farms and families together for great food and to support small local farms and sustainable agriculture.
You have access to a selected share or range of farm products offered by a single local farm or group of farmers based on partial or total advance payment of a subscription or membership fee. On many farms you are welcome to participate in the life of the farm – through workdays and celebrations.
When you become a member of a CSA, you’re purchasing a “share” of vegetables from a regional farmer. Weekly or bi-weekly, from June until October or November, your farmer will deliver that share of produce to a convenient drop-off location in your neighborhood.
Many CSAs also offer the option of other produce from local farms. For a few extra dollars a week, in addition to your vegetables, you can add fruit, eggs, meat, and even flowers to your order.
Important To Know Before You Enroll
If chosen CSA don’t offer pick-up location, check to make sure you are within CSA delivery area.
