Grow Your Own CSA is a unique Community Supported Agriculture farm planning tool suite of more than a dozen worksheets and forms to help existing and beginner farmers get started marketing via a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model. Even if you don't operate a CSA but need a market garden planner or market farm planner you could greatly benefit from this tool suite. Information to help you set up your farm business is also provided, as well as a CSA Quick Start Module so you can get started fast!
In the CSA model customers pre-purchase the produce they will receive from the farmer. CSA members usually pay the farmer a lump sum at the beginning of the year and the farmer provides boxes of produce each week over the course of the harvest season. For more information on this type of marketing model see Wikipedia's Community Supported Agriculture page.
The fantasticfarm.org CSA planning tool suite helps CSA farmers create business plans and navigate crop succession planning so they know in advance how much to charge their members for the season as well as what will be in each weekly CSA box. The Grow Your Own CSA tool suite includes the Fantastic Farm and Garden Calculator and everything you need to operate a CSA.
