What positive changes would you like to see happen with CSAs?
The usual business model around here is to sell CSA shares to individuals and families, and it works well. A lot of the same farms that do that also sell produce to restaurants and sell at farmers markets. I think juggling all three outlets can be time consuming and inefficient, and I would like to see a shift where farmers sell large amounts of produce to restaurants as CSA shares. It would be challenging for us to have to cook with what we get rather than place weekly orders, but I think it would make a lot of sense financially.
