Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a relationship between the farmer and the CSA member. CSA member is sharing the risks inherent in agriculture that come with the growing season (including weather, insects, crop diseases, etc.) with the other CSA members and the farmer. In very rare cases where there is a crop failure the members may not receive their anticipated share. The size and duration of each share is dependent on these variables. The members share in the bounty and enjoy farm fresh vegetables every season.
