"As a founding member of the first CSA west of the Mississippi (Live Power Community Farm) in 1988, I would like to describe how we work. While there are various interpretations of what CSA is, there are some core principles that are essential to the deeper value of the practice—especially the relationships between the farmers and member-shareholder-eaters (the community), price, and risk."

Update January 18, 2012;
"... The year was 1986, and there were only two Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) initiatives in the USA: Indian Line Farm in western Massachusetts, and the Temple-Wilton Community Farm in southern New Hampshire. But not long after that, as the CSA concept spread across America and around the world, the number of farms became a bit of an enigma.

No one was ever quite sure how many CSAs there were. The federal government didn’t track the number; at the same time, for a variety of reasons, many CSAs wanted little to do with government or larger systems. ..."

"CSA is not just another clever, new approach to marketing for farmers ... Rather, community farming is about the necessary renewal of agriculture through its healthy linkage with the human community that depends upon farming for survival. From experience we also see the potential of community farming as the basis for a renewal of the human relationship with the earth."

"Unraveling the CSA Number Conundrum" by Steven McFadden, co-author of the first book on community supported agriculture, Farms of Tomorrow, looks at the history and trending growth of the CSA movement, including the critical involvement of the biodynamic community:

The agricultural message here is solid!
The community need for healing foods is also informative!
