CSA AND FOOD CO-OPS

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) provides a direct link between a local farmer and you. You purchase a share of harvested crops at the beginning of the season which helps farmers cover planting and harvesting costs, and they provide in-season, local vegetables (and sometimes fruit, dairy, meat, and more) weekly at a predetermined drop spot throughout the growing season.

Co-ops can take the shape of retail stores or buying clubs. All food coops are committed to consumer education, product quality, and member control, and usually support their local communities by selling produce grown locally by family farms.
