Community Supported Agriculture

Community Supported Agriculture or CSA’s as they are commonly referred to offer those who want to prepare their own food the opportunity to buy directly from the farmer.  When one becomes a CSA member they share in the cost of farming.  

CSA owners provide baskets or boxes of their harvest to paid members for a certain period of weeks throughout the year. Every operation is different; some CSA owners transport the boxes to a central location for member pick-up while others home deliver for an additional fee. Depending on the number of weeks of harvest and the quantity of vegetables preferred these prices vary across our state. 

Many CSA's advertise on Local Harvest website; go to Local Harvest; select CSA and type in your zipcode and a CSA near you will pop up.
