What is a CSA?
In its purest form, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes essentially that community’s farm, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and rewards of food production. You buy into a share of the farm for a season (or part of a season) and the farm shares its profits (food) back with you as a shareholder.
