Collective farmers’ shops
Community-supported agriculture (CSA model)
Also known as cropsharing, the CSA model is a system that allows consumers to directly subscribe to the harvest of a certain farm or group of farms.
The CSA model is commonly employed using the vegetable box scheme.
- A vegetable box scheme is an operation that delivers fresh fruits and vegetables, often locally grown and organic, either directly to the customer or to a local collection point. This service is typically sold as an ongoing weekly subscription, varying week to week depending on what is in season.
