CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) are gaining momentum, fueled by an increasing demand for local food and a desire to reconnect with nature and the farmers who grow the crops. Basically, CSAs are a partnership between farmers and consumers. In conventional agriculture, the farmer bears all the risk of production, but CSAs allow farmers to share farming’s risks and rewards with consumers.

CSAs revolve around a community of people who pledge their financial support to a farm. At the beginning of the growing season, members pay a fee to cover the cost of the farm’s operations and the farmer’s salary. In return, each member receives a weekly share of the farm’s bounty, typically a box that might include fresh vegetables, herbs, fruit, honey, eggs and meat. For farmers, CSAs offer a fair, steady source of income and a way to revitalize the small family farm. Consumers get fresh produce grown in a sustainable manner by someone they know and trust.

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) maintains a list of CSAs throughout Florida, but, because CSAs are not required to register with us, the list is not a complete one. Being listed does not imply that a CSA is endorsed, approved or otherwise sanctioned by FDACS.
