What is a CSA?
“A CSA reflects an innovative and resourceful strategy to connect local farmers with local consumers; develop a regional food supply and strong local economy; maintain a sense of community; encourage land stewardship; and honor the knowledge and experience of growers and producers working with small to medium farms.”
Why is Community-Supported Agriculture Important?
- CSA encourage direct communication and cooperation among farmers and consumers.
- CSA provide farmers and growers with a fair return on their labor.
- CSA keep food dollars in the local community and contribute to the development and maintenance of regional food systems.
- With a “guaranteed market” for their produce, farmers can invest their time in doing the best job they can producing food rather than marketing their products.
- CSA support the biodiversity of a given farm and the diversity of agriculture.
- CSA create a sense of social responsibility and stewardship of local land.
- CSA put “the farmers face on food” and increase understanding of how, where, and by whom our food is grown.
