Community-supported agriculture

in ecological innovations

Thanks to F&K, I got familiar with the concept of CSA (community-supported agriculture). The idea is simple: you as a farmer produce a package of agricultural products (vegetables or fruits box scheme) and deliver it on the weekly basis to your subscribers which are mainly local families . This local-based socio-economic model has many benefits: a huge supply and demand network is not required and the middle-men are minimized (or omitted). The direct relationship between farmers and consumers not only decreases transportation distances, but also increases the awareness of the customers from process of food production (it is not happening in the industrial clouds anymore, it is visible in their vicinity). Indeed many CSA farmers produce their food without using chemical fertilizers or pesticides. CSA and organic farming go hand in hand.
