About CSAs: Wild Woods Farm is a CSA farm. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and it is a way for our farm to raise food directly for our community for maximum freshness and transparency. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a method for distributing produce directly from the farm to you. Community Supported Agriculture is a farm model that started in the 1960’s in Germany, Switzerland and Japan. The concept came to the US in 1986. It arrived in Iowa in the mid 1990’s. The main reason for its roots and for its existence today as a farm model is to allow the consumer access to fresh food as well as transparency in farming practices. The main components of the CSA model is the commitment between the farmer and the consumer. The farmer commits to grow under a transparent set of practices and provide fresh seasonal food to the consumer and the consumer commits to partner in the farming operation by committing to a full season of vegetables and the risks and costs associated with it.
