WHAT IS A CSA?
A CSA is a commitment between you and your farmer. You invest in a crop share from your local farmer at the beginning of the growing season and they provide you a portion of the anticipated weekly bounty at harvest season. It is a great way to support Idaho farmers, ranchers and food crafters from the ground up!
CSAs have evolved over the years and in Idaho, we are lucky to have such innovative producers who offer creative variations among their Community Supported Agriculture models, including produce, protein, honey, eggs and dairy, kombucha and ciders, or plants and flowers, for example.
Why Support local?
There are countless benefits to supporting local businesses, and that’s especially true of agriculture producers. If you live in Idaho, you may not know that our agriculture industry is pretty darn impressive. Here are just a few facts that prove the assertion:
of Idaho’s farms are family-owned.
of Idaho’s total economic output comes from agriculture, which is the single largest contributor to our economy.
different commodities are produced across Idaho’s 25,000 farms and ranches.
