Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a relationship between farmer and consumer. In a CSA, households (“shareholders” or “subscribers”) provide financial support by purchasing a share of the harvest at the beginning of the growing season. Once harvesting begins, shareholders typically receive weekly shares of vegetables, fruit, eggs, dairy, meat, fish, and poultry depending on the farm’s production capabilities. By becoming a member of a farm, shareholders allow the farmer to cover operating costs and provide security by assuming some of the growing risk with the farmer. In exchange, consumers eat the freshest, local food available and support small farms and protect farmland.
