Community Supported Agriculture Farms

A coalition of the Portland Metro area CSA farmers. CSA farming is a combined effort between a farm and a community of supporters ("harvest shareholders", members) that creates a direct relationship between the production and consumption of food. Each season the harvest shareholders provide the money (and sometimes other resources) needed for the farm to operate by purchasing a "harvest share" of the seasons' harvest. All Metro CSA's listed on this website provide pesticide free food.
