2017 Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) guide for the Iowa City area

  • 7

CSA’s offer a convenient way to get farm-fresh food.

Community Supported Agriculture, or CSA, is a direct to consumer process that connects community members with local farmers and growers. Community members pay to reserve a share of the farms produce early in the season, which lets farmers properly gauge the community’s needs for the coming season.

In turn, community members receive regular deliveries of fresh product straight from the farm, without paying the overhead prices of a typical grocery store. If you might be interested in participating in a CSA, many farmers require commitments early in the season; you are encouraged to contact area CSA farms as soon as possible for more information and to purchase shares.
