Becoming a Calypso CSA Shareholder
We now accept cash, checks, money orders, credit cards (Visa/Mastercard/Discover) and food stamps as payment methods.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) represents a simple, direct relationship between farmer and consumer. In a CSA, ‘shareholders’ pay an agreed upon price at the beginning of the season and receive a weekly supply of vegetables throughout the growing season. This marketing method benefits both the farmer and the local community because the farmer receives a pre-season payment providing financial stability when they need it most and the shareholder receives wonderfully fresh, locally grown produce each week without concerns of pesticides, preservatives, or unfair labor practices. There are currently thousands of CSAs in the United States. Each takes on the unique flavor of its own community.
