Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a concept brought about in Japan by mothers who wished for their children to be raised on nutritious real food.  Here in the Unnited States the term CSA has taken many shapes with food cooperatives and buying clubs.  The true CSA is one where the farmer deals directly with the consumer, no mediary, and the consumer accepts the risk along with the farmer of the unkowns of farming (weather, disease, predator damage, etc..).  Reward is the obvious benefit to all, a good season of growing means the consumer is rewarded with a bounty of nutritious food and the farmer, an income to take them into the next season.
