Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Besides supporting your local economy, there are lots of reasons to join a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. The cost of a CSA membership can range from $200 - $600 per season.

Before you begin, you may want to figure out how much you spend on fresh produce.

Benefits-

  • Fresh locally grown food with minimal handling
  • Introduction to new vegetables and recipes for preparing them
  • Typically you can visit the farm where your food is grown
  • Learn more about how your food is grown
  • Build a relationship with the farmer that grows your food
  • Environmentally sustainable through fuel savings by not shipping and storing the food

Risks-

  • Crop failures mean losses to both the farmer and the CSA member

  • Expectations for food volumes, varieties or hands on activities not fulfilled

  • Unfamiliar or unanticipated food types requiring learning time to grow accustomed to them

  • Unexpected events in the life of the farmer disrupting production
