CSA




Community Supported Agriculture consists of a community of individuals
who pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes,
either legally or spiritually, the community's farm, with the growers
and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and
benefits of food production.



In a traditional CSA model

Members share the risks and benefits of food production with the farmer.

Members buy a share of the farmís production before each growing season.

In return, they receive regular distributions of the farmís bounty
throughout the season.

The farmer receives advance working capital, gains financial security,
earns better crop prices, and benefits from the direct marketing plan.


"Current business models for CSAs are diverse and innovative. Producers
have adapted the CSA model to fit a variety of emerging direct marketing
opportunities, including:


Institutional health and wellness programs;

Multi-farm systems to increase scale and scope;

Season extension technologies; and

Incorporating value-added products, offering
flexible shares, and flexible electronic purchasing
and other e-commerce marketing tools."
