Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a mutually beneficial relationship between a farm and the community of people who receive the food the farm produces.
Members pay their CSA membership for a period of time (three months or more) and, in return, receive a monthly share containing an assortment of delicious chicken and other things the farm produces. The members become a part of the farm’s local food community, develop a relationship with the farm, and learn about the origins of their food and how it is raised. Members share in the inherent rewards and risks of the agricultural season. The arrangement contributes to the viability of small-scale local agriculture and allows the farm to meet expenses throughout the season.
