Howard’s End CSA Farm

Howard’s End CSA Farm

Do you belong to a CSA? Community-supported agriculture (CSA) connects farmers and consumers and offers advantages to both parties. Consumers purchase a share at the beginning of the season and receive a weekly box of fresh-from-the-farm produce. And because farmers receive payment early, they are able to more effectively manage their cash flow and their crops.

Watch a video interview with Addison and learn more about CSA farms.
