Wabi Sabi Farm

What is a CSA?

The Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) concept seems to have originated in Japan in the mid-60's with their concept of Teikei- roughly translated as "food with a farmer's face on it".  For a description of this movement in Japan, click here.  It is a partnership between growers and consumers (CSA members), where the members have a desire to support a grower that produces healthy food for them using methods that the member(s) support.  CSA members purchase a share of the seasons' bounty before it has even been planted and in return for this trust, receive a share of what the farm produces (weekly, bi-weekly, etc.).  In this relationship, Wabi Sabi Farm CSA members receive USDA Certified Organic, locally grown and tasty food that hasn't traveled half way across the country (or world) to get to them.  They also get the opportunity to meet the farmer and visit the farm that has grown their FOOD!!!




"(I) appreciate the farmer-customer relationship and the welcome atmosphere this farm provides for members to visit, chip in and learn"
