CSA's direct marketing gives farmers and growers the fairest return on their products.
CSA keeps food dollars in the local community and contributes to the maintenance and establishment of regional food production.
CSA encourages communication and cooperation among farmers.
With a "guaranteed market" for their produce, farmers can invest their time in doing the best job they can rather than looking for buyers.
CSA supports the biodiversity of a given area and the diversity of agriculture through the preservation of small farms producing a wide variety of crops.
CSA creates opportunity for dialogue between farmers and consumers.
CSA creates a sense of social responsibility and stewardship of local land.
CSA puts "the farmers face on food" and increases understanding of how, where, and by whom our food is grown.
CSA is a partnership between a farm and a community of supporters which provides a relationship between the production and consumption of food. Supporters cover a farm's yearly operating budget by purchasing a share of the season's harvest. CSA members make a commitment to support the farm throughout the season, and assume the costs, risks and bounty of growing food along with the farmer or grower. Members help pay for seeds, tools, labor, etc. In return, the farm provides, to the best of its ability, a healthy supply of seasonal fresh produce throughout the growing season. Becoming a member creates a responsible relationship between people and the food they eat, the land on which it is grown and those who grow it.
Participation in Amy's Farm CSA is available for a weekly commitment of $15/week for 50 weeks paid up front in the amount of $750. (2 weeks off for Christmas). Your commitment will allow you to choose 6 shares of seasonal, naturally grown produce. A "share" is a bundle, bunch, bag, or designated count of a certain item.
