*What's a CSA? Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a produce subscription program where eaters pay in advance and get a share of the produce grown on the farm throughout the season. Put another way, a CSA is a relationship between eaters, farmers and the land in which everyone shares the risks and rewards of farming. You're supporting a local farm and getting lots of delicious, nutritious vegetables in return!
