Community Supported Agriculture

So, what is a CSA?
  It stands for community supported agriculture and it began in the early 1960s in Germany, Switzerland, and Japan as a response to concerns about food safety and the urbanization of agricultural land. Groups of consumers and farmers in Europe formed cooperative partnerships to fund farming and pay the full costs of ecologically sound and socially equitable agriculture. 
What does that mean for you?  
CSAs usually consist of a system of weekly delivery or pick-up of vegetables and fruit in a box, sometimes including dairy products and meat.  FARM FRESH, COMMUNITY SUPPORTED.  This is healthy eating, and living, at it's best.
