  • Today, farmers and consumers are taking a second look at an economic farming model that involves a partnership between a farm and a community of supporters who agree to cover a farm's yearly operating budget by purchasing a share of the season's harvest. This publication explains how CSA works, how the money and members are managed, what's involved with distribution, risk factors and how decisions are made.
