Local CSA Farms

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a farming concept that started in Switzerland and Japan in the 1960s and has become increasingly popular in the United States. A CSA is a partnership between a farm and community members, who share in the risks and benefits of the farm’s food production. For more information on CSA vist: Community Supported Agriculture
