CSAs Gain Popularity in Nova Scotia


CAPE BRETON, N.S. — Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), a program that is popular in large Canadian cities, is gaining attention in Cape Breton, N.S., too, according to CBC News.

Ryan and Amanda MacInnis of Hillshore Farm in Mabou, Cape Breton had 14 customers when they started the program, which is in its first year.

They charge an annual fee to offset the costs of seed orders and farm maintenance and then charge a separate price based on the weight of the produce. The customers who sign up receive a produce box every Wednesday for 15 weeks.
