Economics of Joining a CSA
CSA shares offer more value for your food dollar. First, 100% of your money goes directly to the farmer to grow and harvest high quality food for you. By working directly together, farmers and consumers can cut out middlemen related costs (trucking companies, retailers, lobbyists, etc.).
Second, the produce is lower cost and much fresher than supermarket fruits and vegetables.
