WHAT IS A CSA?
The idea of community supported agriculture (CSA) originated with a community's desire to support local agriculture. A farmer grows shares of produce, fruit, or other agricultural products, in our case finished wine. Shares are purchased before the growing season and the community and farmer shared in the risks that came with agriculture. They also shared in the joys of locally grown fresh products. In our model, the risk is minimal. We have already grown and harvested the crop, so we know we are going to make wine. The only risk is if a bottling is delayed or we determine not to bottle a particular wine. In this case we will substitute another wine of equal value.
