People who are part of a CSA are buying a guaranteed share of a farmer's crops. CSA's can sell produce, fresh fruit, meat, eggs or flowers. By paying up front for a share of the crop, you are also sharing part of the risk of farming - ex. early or late frosts, rainy or very dry weather, crop damage due to pests or diseases or the local animal population deciding that your chickens are tonight's meal. A CSA is also good for the farmers since they get a guaranteed market for their crops and they get up-front money, very important in the spring. Please take a minute to download the Farm to Table CSA brochure at the bottom of the page. It has a lot more information regarding the CSA.
