What is C.S.A.?
Community Shared Agriculture has been around for many years. Customers invest in a share for the season's harvest. Ideally the share is paid up front early in Spring to ensure a spot but also to ensure the cash flow of the farm for starting the field production (seeds, compost, workers ... ). The CSA concept makes it possible for small-scale farms to guarantee a part of income, instead of leaving it all up to farmers markets speculations. The shareholders also share the risks of weather and growing season with the farmer.
People who buy a share in the farm will receive a weekly box of veggies that is enough to feed 2 adults from the end of June into February. 32 weeks. The farm will be planting over 40 different types of vegetables and over 100 different varieties. This allows the farm to have a great diversity so if it is a dry year, a wet year, a cool year or a hot year, shareholders will be more or less guaranteed a bumper crop of many types of vegetables.
