What is a CSA? It stands for Community Supported Agriculture. This concept, along with “slow food” was started to put the people and their food in close proximity…. not 2,000-6,000 miles from each other. The way it works is that the shareholders (you) and the farmer (us) get together before the season begins and decide on what will be grown in the garden. Then we go to work! You accept the natural risks of raising crops, and we try our best to eliminate the risks. We partner with you as advisers in your own small plot farming adventure. Feel free to get answers to any questions you may still have by checking out our FAQ page.
