CSA, or community supported agriculture, has become a popular way
for consumers to buy local and seasonal produce directly from a
farmer. The consumer purchases a “share” (or membership) from a
farmer and in return, they receive a box of fresh produce (or
coffee, meat, or whatever else the producer chooses) each week
throughout the farming season. Some CSAs allow you to choose
every-other-week schedules, adding extra things like handmade
pasta or nuts, or even different sizes of boxes.
