Welcome to our CSA
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture , an idea being around since the early 1960's ,
and now popular in Canada , the US , all over Europe and Asia , where they were first created in Japan.
Partnering with a CSA consumers will know , where their food comes from .
It will be fresh , the negative ecological footprint of long haul transport being avoided .
Subscribing to a weekly CSA box assures the farmer , that her or his products are sold at harvest and
allows to concentrate on quality rather than quantity .
