CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and is a direct marketing model for Farms. In this model, community members buy a share in the farm for the year and in return receive a weekly or biweekly share of produce during the growing season. By cutting out the middle man and connecting consumers directly to the farmer, CSAs bring consumers the freshest seasonal produce possible while making farming more profitable for small farms.
Buying a CSA share is very much like investing in a company’s stock. By investing in each year’s membership, you are also investing in Morningside Farm’s future. Much like a stock, there are risks involved. Some years may be very productive, while others may be less productive. Farmers cannot control the weather, but can only adjust to it. We pledge to do our absolute best every season, and are confident that your long-term investment in Morningside CSA will be to your benefit.
