What is a CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a relationship of mutual support and benefit between a farmer and a group of shareholders. Members or shareholders purchase in advance some portion of the farm’s production for a season. Their participation supports the farmer especially by sharing the cost of production early the season. Members then receive their shares of the farm’s bounty throughout the growing season. Members share in the benefits of food production and in the risks, including poor harvest due to unfavorable weather or pests. A CSA is a great way to support the local economy, work for food security in your community, expand your kitchen repertoire and guarantee that you will eat well through the year!

Thanks for considering Eaton’s Creek CSA this 2016 season. Unfortunately, we have reached our shareholder limit. Please keep us in mind for next year!
