What is a CSA?
Community-supported agriculture (CSA) is a concept designed to encourage relationships between consumers and growers and for consumers to become more knowledgeable about the way their food is grown. A CSA involves consumers who support a farmer financially by paying for a share of the farm's production prior to each growing season.
CSAs range from smaller operations with three to twenty members to larger CSAs with hundreds of members or subscribers. Some CSAs have pick-up locations at one or more spots in the community in addition to, or in lieu of pick up at the farm.
The benefit to the consumer is the opportunity to obtain fresh, local produce, meats, eggs, and more from farmers in their communities. Direct-to-consumer farm marketing addresses the concern that the average distance that food travels from farm to consumer in the United States is approximately 1,300 miles, and participating in a CSA is one way to lessen the miles our food travels between a farm and our family table. Another advantage of obtaining food locally is that the money stays within the local community.
The CSA arrangement allows farmers to buy the seeds, transplants, and other things they need for the growing season, and pay their farm labor without waiting until harvest to generate revenue. Farmers can develop a long-term relationship with their members, one that may encourage members to support farmers by renewing their memberships each year.
