Community Supported Agriculture is a mutually beneficial partnership between farmers and community members, sharing the risks and rewards of growing food. Susquehanna Community Agriculture Project (SCSAP) provides members with a variety of locally grown organic fresh foods. The CSA is more than the expectation of money for goods – it yields more than a season’s worth of food, it yields a stronger local community.
Goals of the SCSAP:
-to keep local farms vital and sustainable -contribute more to developing the local economy in Otsego County -develop a local food network -provide opportunities to learn about our local seasonal food production -pay a living wage to participating farmers -improve nutrition through organic and wholistic farming practices
