What is a CSA?
CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture”, and is a unique model of local agriculture where members purchase a share of a farmer's crop before it's planted. This allows the farmer to pay for the seeds and supplies for the upcoming growing season. CSA members share in the harvest When the season is not so good, members shoulder the risk. This mutually supportive relationship between local farmers, growers and community members helps create an economically stable farm operation in which members are assured the highest quality produce at wholesale prices.
What is a share?
A share is essentially the amount of produce you will receive throughout the growing season. Here at Country Roots we offer two different sizes of shares: full and half. A half shareholder receives their share bi-weekly, while a full shareholder receives a share every week. All shareholders will start receiving their shares at the beginning of harvesting season, typically in mid June, and each share will contain various in-season produce.
