What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?
Purchasing a CSA share has benefits for both consumer and producer!
Consumers benefit by getting a weekly distribution of the freshest seasonal produce. Your weekly produce is usually harvested on the same day you receive it. Once you have purchased your CSA share, you come once a week to the distribution site to pick up your "share" of produce. You don't need to worry about placing an order or bringing your checkbook (CSA shares are paid for by the beginning of the season). The consumer also has the opportunity to try new and heirloom varieties of produce, many of which are unavailable at the supermarket. Local producers are free to select varieties for supreme taste qualities instead of durability for shipping and long shelf life.
Producers benefit by having an assured market for their products and having consumers share in both the risks and rewards associated with farming. Receiving payments before the season starts helps with the up front costs of production.
Farm to Folk is committed to providing the producers with fair compensation for their labor.
