What is a CSA?  In a CSA, you purchase a “share” in a local farm and receive periodic deliveries of local, delicious, farm-fresh products.

Why is the CSA model important to farmers and consumers? A CSA, or subscription model provides farmers with a predictable understanding of how much product to produce, and consumers have confidence in knowing where their food originates.
