What is a CSA?

For those of you who aren’t familiar, “CSA” stands for community sustained agriculture. This relatively new socio-economic concept changes the way food is produced, distributed and sold, creating small scale closed markets for farmers in which the consumer participates in the risk and rewards of the farm. One of the great benefits of the CSA (in addition to receiving nutrient dense fresh produce) is that it gives our farmers more opportunity to do what they do best –grow your food. The farmers also receive more money for their crops and save time by not having to market produce to stores.  This last point is a big deal.  At Happy Belly CSA we consider ourselves cheerleaders for Paonia farmers!
