The conversation usually goes as follows. Me: You want some peaches they’re from Upstate? I have extra ones from my CSA. Friend: Yea! What’s a CSA?
The Acronym CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and exists as a mutual support and commitment between local farmers and community members who pay the farmer an annual membership fee to cover the production costs of the farm. In turn, members receive a weekly share of the harvest during the growing season. The quality of the produce coupled with the great price makes belonging to a CSA community a rewarding experience.
