Farms that offer CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs, allow individuals to pledge support, usually in the form of a monthly, seasonal or annual subscription fee, to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes in part the community’s farm, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production. CSA’s focus is usually on a system of weekly delivery or pick-up of vegetables and fruit, sometimes dairy products and meat. Program fees and structure differ from farm to farm.
