Community Supported Agriculture

Some family farms have a found a way to make a go of it, by blending the values of traditional organic and local food production, with unconventional approaches to marketing. It's called community-supported agriculture, or CSA, and it's designed to preserve small farms while reconnecting them with local communities. In a community supported farm, members pay upfront for a share of the season's produce. Shareholders also have the option to work at and enjoy the farm. The Allegheny Front's Ann Murray joined farmer Susan Sauter with one of her shareholders, Bill Miller, as they harvest beans for that week's delivery, in this visit to a CSA in West Virginia.
