Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is way to buy local food directly from a farmer. You purchase a “share” and become a farm “member.” You then receive a box of vegetables or other farm products regularly throughout the growing season. Some farms also offer choose-your-own or “market shares” where you can make your own box of veggies at the farm stand.
Members of a CSA select a farm and pay for the full season in advance, which helps cover the initial annual costs of the farm operation. In return, members receive boxes of the farm’s produce or products throughout the growing season, and the satisfaction gained by reconnecting to the land and learning about local food production.
