What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and it is a term used to describe the kind of transaction that happens when a buyer purchases farming goods directly from a farm itself. The whole point of a CSA is to connect the consumer (you) more closely with the farm (Storie Farms) where your food is grown. When you purchase a CSA share you are reserving your meat for the upcoming season.
Advantages for the Consumer
When purchasing food this way you know exactly where your food is coming from and you know how it is being grown. Purchasing directly from your local farmer results in your food changing far fewer hands. You are shortening your supply chain tremendously. This reduces the environmental impact on the globe and our communities.
Advantages for the Farmer
We get to raise meat directly for the consumer. We will raise healthier animals and higher quality meat simply because the consumer has already purchased the product. This way our attention is not distracted by all the various details associated with marketing and sales and can remain solely on raising the animals.
