How Does a CSA Work?

Food is a basic human need. Join a growing movement of conscious consumers who want to know where their food is coming from and to make sure that growing practices are safe and that food is of the highest quality. Join the MCFC CSA and know where your food comes from, who grows it and get it fresh picked!

A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a way for the consumer to create a relationship with a farm. In the spring, the farmer sells shares in their farm’s upcoming harvest to consumers, who become “members” of the CSA. The share price goes toward the cost of growing and distributing a season’s worth of produce and paying the farmer a living wage. At regular intervals from June through November, the CSA farmer delivers produce to a central location for the members to pick up.
