What is CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported agriculture. Consumers buy shares of a farm's harvest in advance by paying an agreed amount at the beginning of the growing season, either in one lump sum or in installments. The annual cost depends on the length of the harvest season and the variety and quantity of products provided.
By paying at the beginning of the season, CSA members share in the risk of production and relieve the farmer of much of the time needed for marketing. This allow the farmer to concentrate on good land stewardship and growing high quality food.
In return for their membership fee, consumers receive a variety of freshly picked vegetables every week. Consumer-members eat healthy, sustainably produced food and have the satisfaction of knowing where it came from and how it was grown.
Here at Waite Family Farms we strive to create the most nutrient dense healing food we can. Healing our soil, our bodies and our communities.
