Why is CSA Important?

  • CSA encourages direct communication and cooperation among farmers and consumers.
  • CSA provides farmers and growers with a fair return on their labor.
  • CSA keeps food dollars in the local community and contribute to the development and maintenance of regional food systems.
  • With a "guaranteed market" for their produce, farmers can invest their time in doing the best job they can producing food rather than marketing their products.
  • CSA supports the biodiversity of a given farm and the diversity of agriculture.
  • CSA creates a sense of social responsibility and stewardship of local land.
  • CSA puts "the farmers face on food" and increase understanding of how, where, and by whom our food is grown.
