Consumer Supported Agriculture
Consumer-supported agriculture, commonly referred to as a CSA model, is a system that connects the producer and consumers within the food system more closely by allowing the consumer to subscribe to the harvest of a certain farm or group of farms. It is an alternative socioeconomic model of agriculture and food distribution that allows the producer and consumer to share the risks of farming.The model is a subcategory of civic agriculture that has an over arching goal of strengthening a sense of community through local markets.In return for subscribing to a harvest, subscribers receive either a weekly or bi-weekly box of produce or other farm goods. This includes in-season fruits and vegetables and can expand to dried goods, eggs, milk, meat, etc. Wikipedia
"Like having your own farm without getting dirty"
Most CSA's offer seasonal fruits and vegetables during regular growing seasons, while we at C&C know that good wholesome food is important all year long, we are making every effort to prolong the vegetable "season" while utilizing our aquaponics green house and hoop house. We are also able to supplement those leaner months with optional natural raised chicken and pork and soon we will be adding grass fed beef to your share!
Our season starts in early April! Everything we raise is done so naturally, without chemicals. Our CSA members can expect to receive the freshest produce, eggs and meat the whole year. We are also able to offer milk, on site, plus we make some really delicious baked goods right here on the farm!
We live and grow in the Eureka Springs, Arkansas area and invite you to be a part of our farm so that you too can "eat clean", the way God intended!
