Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is the future of farming

CSA allows city residents to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce grown locally by regional farmers. Consumers purchase a "share" in the beginning of the season, putting trust in their local farmer and as a result directly supporting their business. In return farmers work with the consumers and send them their freshest vegetables in the perfect amount for their family.

But CSA farming is more than just growing food. It's about the community and connection growers can cultivate with eaters.

CSA's often put on festivals and events for their share members, and even invite them out to the farm. CSA's include recipes, and blogs posts about their staff and happenings on the farm. Members feel close to their farmers and overall it's a mutually beneficial relationship. If people cared more about where they are getting their food, the world could be a much better place.
