CSA Harvest Box Member Agreement 2017
Community Shared agriculture (CSA) is an alternative, locally based socio-economic model of agriculture and food distribution. A CSA refers to a particular network or association of individuals who have pledged to support one or more local farms, with growers and consumers sharing the risks and benefits of food production. CSA members pay at the onset of the growing season (high farm capital time) for a share of the anticipated harvest; once harvesting begins, they receive weekly shares of vegetables, in a harvest box, and also sometimes herbs, and fruit. As a CSA member, you are an important part of the Earth Apple Farm community. It allows you to bypass the conventional supply chain and directly contribute to the viability of a small-‐scale, organic farm in your region.
