Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) brings together farmers and people in neighboring communities into a direct, mutually beneficial relationship. CSA farms provide sun-ripened, freshly picked, sustainably grown produce to CSA members via weekly delivery to a central neighborhood location. In return, the CSA community provides its farmers with a reliable and steady market throughout the season, regardless of natural fluctuations in harvest yields.
