Food, Folks, Fun At Arcata's CSAs

Community supported agriculture, or CSAs, are a way for people to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Members of the CSA support their farmers by pledging their commitment and purchasing a share in the spring. Once harvest begins, shareholders pick up their portion of weekly produce at the farm. Buying directly from the farmer keeps your dollars local, builds a sustainable economy and cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions from trucking in food.
