CSA farming is no longer a brand-new business model—it’s a pathway to diversifying and sustaining your farm business. Farmers are trying new ideas and pushing the limits of what a CSA can be, particularly with online ordering and customization options. Long-established CSA farms are facing competition, and this competition is pushing CSA farms to be more efficient, more effective, and more innovative. This toolkit is designed to aid farmers in developing and maintaining successful CSAs.
