Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a unique model of local agriculture. Its roots reach back to Japan, where women consumers, concerned about the increase in food imports and the corresponding decrease in the farming population, initiated a direct growing and purchasing relationship with local farms. This arrangement, called teikei in Japanese, translates to “putting the farmers' face on food.” This concept traveled to Europe and, in 1985, was adapted for the U.S. and given the name “Community Supported Agriculture” at Indian Line Farm, Massachusetts. It is estimated that there are now over 1200 CSA farms across North America.
Community Supported Agriculture is a partnership between a farm and a community of supporters. At the beginning of the season CSA members purchase a “share” of the upcoming season's harvest. The farm then provides a diverse bag of enticing produce for weekly pick up.
Eating seasonally and locally is delicious, healthy, and educational. We love to grow crops that are heirloom, beautiful and tasty and look forward to sharing them with our members.
