Community Supported Agriculture is a growing movement that connects farmers directly with consumers. Members buy a "share" of the farm's produce for the season, and pick up shares on a weekly or monthly basis.
Having a CSA share is a great way for consumers to buy fresh, locally produced food at very afforable prices. Having a farmshare means relationships are created with farmers, consumers know where their food comes from, and people can support their local economy. Buying into a CSA is a wonderful way to support yourself in eating a plant-based diet.
Farmers usually prefer that members pay upfront, but some farms offer more flexible payment plans. Some CSA farms also require that members work a certain number of hours on the farm during the season. The length of a CSA season varies between farms, and also by climate.
