How did this whole idea get started?

The CSA started in Japan in 1965 where it is known as a Teikei, which translates to partnership or cooperation.  A group of Japanese women became concerned with the increased use of synthetic chemicals, the prevalence of processed foods and corresponding decline in the farm population.   To alleviate this, the women initiated a direct, cooperative, mutually beneficial relationship with local farmers whereby they would purchase a share of the farmer’s crop at the start of the season thereby participating in the farmer’s success and ensuring local grown produce with quality.
In the 1980’s the concept was brought to United States from Europe – where it was adopted earlier.  Through the last couple of decades, CSA’s have spread across the US and Canada and number in the thousands across the continent.

We are changing to a new system to be able to offer a more flexible, no restrictions format where you can choose from all options available and combine with beef, pork, produce, eggs, etc.

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I want good, wholesome fruits and vegetables for my family, at a reasonable cost, peak freshness, and in turn want to help out a local farm?” My answer was yes, and I found Landisdale Farm. We participated in this CSA program for the first time in the summer of 2008. My daughter’s love going to the farm and picking out vegetables. We are looking forward to June to start going again!

According to Elizabeth Henderson,
"The essence of the relationship is the mutual commitment:
the farm feeds the people, the people support the farm
and share the inherent risks and potential bounty."
