Why Community Supported Agriculture?

All of us are increasingly aware that the present state of farming in the United States and around the world is in serious difficulty. Agribusiness, with its chemical-intensive, industrialized methods of crop production is replacing agriculture, with its small human-scale and diversified character and its commitment to place and community.

With only 2% of Americans actually producing food for the other 98%, people are increasingly separated from the source of their food and from the understanding of the vital relationships that connect people, food, soils and health.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a creative response to this crisis. It offers an opportunity for a community of people to take greater responsibility for their social and community relationships by mutually supporting their own farm. It sees their food source as an essential part of their lives. In turn, the farm supports them and provides not only nutritious chemical-free food, but an opportunity to grow in friendship, mutual support, and a commitment to restore the soils, air and water through their choices and decisions.
