Our Veggie Boxes – About CSAs
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs were established to help the farmer share the risks and rewards of volatile growing conditions with the community the food is feeding. The CSA model asks that the customer buy a share of the farm’s harvest for the year, in advance of the growing season. This both gives the farmer the income needed to buy the seed etc. necessary to get the crops in the ground at a time when there is little to no produce being sold, as well as providing the customer with a share of the harvest that reflects that year’s growing conditions, whether the crops grow prolifically or slightly less, due to inclement weather, pests or other variables.
