A CSA is like a farm subscription, each week of the growing season you get a box of whatever is in season that week. The "Community" part means that you are buying into the farm with other subscribers - investing in a farm at this time of year when they need it most to plan and plant the coming harvest.
Find your CSA Right Here
Any CSA can be split among friends of family - alternating weeks or splitting up a larger share is an easy way to share the harvest and be sure there is always someone there to pick it up.
