Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)


CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) is a great concept because the farmer is in direct contact with the people he supplies. Therefore, the consumer is in a position to know if any objectionable practices are used such as coating the produce with animal-based waxes (usually they are not, and are only meant for stuff sent to markets to increase their appeal [shiner, brighter] and shelf life [coating limits the amount of oxygen getting to the vegetable or fruit and thus slows oxydation]). For more information on CSAs visit the Community Supported Agriculture of North America site at: http://www.umass.edu/umext/csa/
