Arkansas Multi-Farm CSA

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a proven and popular way for consumers to buy seasonal food from a local farmer. The Arkansas Multi-Farm CSA will reconnect communities by providing consumers with access to healthy, locally produced food while creating stable markets for small-scale farmers that pay them a fair price for their goods, thereby increasing their incomes and providing them with opportunities for sustainable living as the Multi-farm CSA develops into a farmer-owned cooperative business. Heifer International USA will partner with local entities and leverage its resources to build a core business infrastructure that will market and sell subscription shares, serve as the aggregation point for the farmers’ products, pay the farmers for their supply, provide technical support, and distribute the product to CSA customers. Heifer will also provide farmers with training and technical assistance in sustainable small-scale agriproduction, food safety and post-harvest practices, and entrepreneurial and farm-business management.
