How CSA’s work
CSAs take different shapes and sizes, fitting the communities they serve. All CSAs consist of a community of eaters committing to support a farm (or group of farmers) for a season. Members usually get a set share of vegetables determined by what is ready to harvest that day. But from organization to produce distribution, the CSA model is flexible. Some CSAs are run by non-profits, a core group of volunteers, or by the farmer themselves. CSA’s may require work participation from their members, on the farm or at distribution. Some CSAs deliver a pre-packaged box to your doorstep, others have pick-up at the farm.
