About Community Supported Agriculture (CSA):
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between the CSA member and the farmer. Farm members buy a CSA share each spring. In return they receive a weekly box of produce directly from the the farm that is delivered to a dropsite near their home. Produce is delivered during the height of the growing season for 15-22 weeks. With each box of produce, members receive a newsletter of farm news, recipes and cooking tips. CSA represent a great way for citizens to support local agriculture, support sustainable family farms, know their farmer, and increase their consumption of nutritious locally produced fruits and vegetables.
