Community Supported Agriculture
What is CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture connects consumers directly with farmers. Consumers pay for a series of produce boxes in advance. It is a commitment to a local farm and supports a fair food system, sustainability and community. Payment up front gives small farmers money when they need it the most – to start their season of growing healthy, delicious, quality produce. Each week during their subscription, the consumer receives a mix of local, seasonal veggies and herbs.
Support your local urban farms by subscribing to a CSA!
