What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?

A CSA is a partnership between the farmer and the shareholders. Shareholders pay up front for their produce, which gives the farmer “seed” money to plant, pay wages to farm hands, and purchase materials as needed.

Then, the shareholders come weekly to collect their baskets. There is an understanding that weather, drought, and natural disasters can affect the crops. However, the shareholders agree to share in these risks. Shareholders also share in the high yielding crops and sometimes get more than expected.
