What is a CSA, Cost & Benefits for Joining?
What if you could get a season's worth of produce directly from a local farmer? You can! Community Supported Agriculture, CSA for short, is a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food straight from the farmer who grows it. Members receive prearranged schedule for their membership fee. Here’s how it works: a farmer offers a certain number of "shares" of the farm’s bounty for sale at the beginning of the season.
The price of a Partial Vegetable CSA membership is $450.00.
The price of a Full Vegetable CSA membership is $675.00.

Some Additional Thoughts
CSA participation provides direct support for thousands of small farms and the freshest local food for thousands of families. As side benefits, CSAs help with environmental considerations, i.e. reducing individuals' carbon foot prints associated with the transportation of food supplies from distant locations, builds networks of families who are cultivating new and healthy aspects of community life, and helps shape a better model of smaller scale agricultural production.
