FoxDog Farm: Community Sponsored Agriculture
FoxDog Farm has run a Community Sponsored Agriculture Program for about 10 years. In 2016 we took a break from the CSA and are formulating some changes to our farming operation. Our CSA has been retired!
The Community Sponsored Agriculture concept worked quite well for us for a few years. Lately, however it has become more difficult as the two farmers at FoxDog have aged. A CSA requires huge energy and time inputs from those involved in growing, harvesting and promoting the food. We find we sometimes struggle to find enough energy. We still grow our own food, and food for our family, but sadly can't provide for the community any more.
