Rooted in Your Community, Harvested for Your Table


What is Community Supported Agriculture?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way for citizens to directly support farming and farmers in their communities. Members purchase a share of a farm’s produce for the growing season. These shareholders pay their money upfront and in return typically receive a weekly delivery of what is in season at their local farm. The benefits of reduced transportation costs, having a varied local diet, and a direct positive impact on communities are some of the benefits of participating in this process. is your gateway to Community Supported Agriculture in Utah.

Why Community Supported Agriculture?


Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food

Members that participate in Community Supported Agriculture have an opportunity to talk with the farmer and visit their farm to see how their produce is grown. Many CSA farms allow shareholders to get involved in a variety of field events and gain an understanding of what is involved in growing their food in a way that is often consistent with their values. This active dialogue can increase the quality of the experience of buying and eating fruits and vegetables produced in the ecosystem you live.
