In a CSA (Consumer Supported Agriculture), customers pay for “shares” and receive a percentage of the products harvested from local farms. “Shares” are available from farms and farm cooperatives throughout Western PA. Customers pick a designated site such a home, business or church for pick up.

CSAs have gained popularity over the years and farms have responded by offering a variety of options:

  • Weekly, bi-weekly or monthly shares
  • Small and large shares
  • Organic or Certified Naturally Grown
  • Dietary concerns such as vegan or gluten-free shares
  • Customized orders
  • Paying weekly or “as you order”

Tips for Buying a CSA “Share”

  • Share! Share a “share” with a friend or family member.
  • Drop! Pick a drop site convenient to your home or work.
    • Farms may add a site if there is a minimum of 10 – 15 customers.
  • Cook! Use fresh ingredients each week to make meals at home.
    • Many CSAs provide recipes that incorporate that week’s harvest.

Keep It Real, Keep it Local!
