Diss Community Farm is a new CSA group starting up in Diss, Norfolk
Community supported agriculture (CSA) is where a community makes a financial pledge to support a local farm. Together the farm and community share the ups and downs, risks and rewards of farming and growing â€“ and help each other out.
By making a financial commitment to a Community Farm scheme, people become â€˜membersâ€™. They pay for a season up-front through, monthly or even annual payments. In return they receive a share of the farmâ€™s produce.
CSAs help to directly connect local farmers with their communities, and to support the development of local food supplies. There are lots of benefits to becoming involved, from knowing where your food comes from, to helping to develop a secure market for local producer.
Benefits of CSA for consumers are:
* fresh, local, typically (organic) produce
* reduce environmental impact of food consumed
* access to land where food is grown
* involvement in the growing process
* meet other like minded people at farm days, and social events
* increase understanding of where food comes from
* have a say in the future shape of the countryside through directly supporting local food production
For the grower/farmer:
* fair return on their work and produce
* guaranteed market
* links to the surrounding community
* help with labour and the
* development of new initiatives
Having just started up a few months ago, we really need to raise funds in order to help support this project and let it grow.
