What is a CSA?
Community supported agriculture (CSA) is a system in which members of a community invest in their local farm by paying for a share of the seasons harvest in the spring (when the expenses are high but the income is low. ) A farmer therefore gets cash in the beginning of the season when it is most needed, and customers get a share of milk/vegetables/fruit/flowers etc. each week of the season, usually worth their investment price plus a percentage extra as a reward for pre-payment.
