last 20 years of CSA

by Ally

Over the last 20 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer.

Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of "shares" to the public.

Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be included.

Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a "membership" or a "subscription") and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.


Yes, Ally, CSA is definitely a win-win situation for both buyer and seller, and is a perfect way of having a ready market as well as cutting out the middle man, expensive transportation costs, etc.
