In the CSA system, the consumer purchases a season’s worth of vegetables
(sometimes flowers, fruits, herbs and even milk or meat) in the Spring, and
then receives weekly shares throughout the growing season. In some CSA systems,
the consumer may actually do labor on the farm or help administrate the CSA
program in lieu of payment.
CSA farms are small, independent, labor-intensive, family farms. By providing a
guaranteed market through prepaid annual sales, consumers essentially help
finance farming operations when the farm needs it most—during the planting
allows farmers to not only focus on quality growing, it can also somewhat level
the playing field in a food market that favors usually large-scale,
industrialized agriculture over local food. Vegetables and fruit are the most
common CSA crops. The cost of a share is usually competitively priced when
compared to the same amount of vegetables conventionally-grown, partly because
the cost of distribution is lowered.

o Salt Creek Farm, 310
