Community Supported Agriculture is a way to support a local farm and get a regular supply of fresh produce and other local foods.
In a CSA, consumers purchase a subscription to a local farm. This helps the farmer with funds to get their season started and subscribers get a regular portion of the harvest throughout the season, usually a large box of produce delivered to a central location weekly. Most CSA farms are certified organic. Some have options to get other products like eggs, bread, fruit, or flowers.
