Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Farms

Learn about CSAs, how they work, and where you can find them.

CSAs offer the public a new way to invest in local agriculture, while enjoying delicious, fresh food throughout the season. CSAs are a way for the food buying public to create a relationship with a farm and to receive a weekly basket of produce. 

What to know

CSA share taken by Peggy Leung-Strle

By making a financial commitment to a farm, people become "members" of the CSA. Most farmers prefer members pay for the season up-front, but some farmers will accept weekly or monthly payments. Some CSA farms also require that members work a small number of hours on the farm during the growing season. In return, customers receive weekly delivery or pick-up of vegetables, fruit, or herbs. Some CSAs may even provide members with milk of meat.
