Wayne Baskins, has been gardening all of his life.  Mostly providing for his family and sharing with the community.  You'll find he has a wealth of knowledge about the vegetables he chooses to plant, but he is also willing to try new things and offer variety.  He enjoys being a part of a communtiy supported vegetable farm and hopes the members involved enjoy it as much. 

 

WHAT IS COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE  (CSA)? 

CSA is a relationship of mutual support and commitment between local farmers and community members who pay the farmer an annual membership fee to cover the production costs of the farm. In turn, members receive a weekly share of the harvest during the local growing season. The arrangement guarantees the farmer financial support and enables many small- to moderate-scale organic family farms to remain in business. Ultimately, CSA creates "agriculture-supported communities" where members receive a wide variety of foods harvested at their peak of ripeness, flavor and vitamin and mineral content. 

Wayne & Abby

Farmer Wayne has been gardening all his life.  Each year he has grown his vegetables and shared with the community. 

CSAs generally focus on the production of high quality foods for a local community, often using organic or biodynamic farming methods, and a shared risk membership–marketing structure. This kind of farming operates with a much greater degree of involvement of consumers and other stakeholders than usual — resulting in a stronger consumer-producer relationship. The core design includes developing a cohesive consumer group that is willing to fund a whole season’s budget in order to get quality foods. The system has many variations on how the farm budget is supported by the consumers and how the producers then deliver the foods. CSA theory purports that the more a farm embraces whole-farm, whole-budget support, the more it can focus on quality and reduce the risk of food waste or financial loss.
