Multi-farm CSA

How they work

This is essentially another multi-farm CSA model, but rather than being co-ordinated by a community group, it is run by a non-loss, non-dividend company – where a modest profit is made and used to further the social and environmental objectives of the CSA. The company uses it's resources in expanding the company's reach, improving the service and/or subsidising the social / environmental mission.
