What is a CSA?

A Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program is a locally-based economic model for local food distribution. You can buy a "share" from our multi-farm enterprise and reap the benefits from your local farmers. Produce is delivered weekly and meats are delivered monthly at multiple locations around Little Rock.
