CSA or Community Supported Agriculture is a model of local agricultural sales.  A CSA consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farmer by paying for a share of their farm at the beginning of the year.  The consumers then share the risks and benefits of food production with the farmer.  CSAs usually consist of a system of weekly delivery or pick-up of vegetables.

New Farms for New Americans (NFNA) is a social enterprise collective of immigrant and refugee farmers from Asia and Africa, coordinated by the Association of Africans Living in Vermont. NFNA growers sell produce to restaurants and grocers, at farmer’s markets, and through our CSA. Farmers grow food by hand, with vast agricultural knowledge and experience, without pesticides and with a concern for sustainable practices.  Learn more about NFNA on the AALV website: www.africansinvermont.org or on facebook: New Farms for New Americans, Vermont.
