Title: Prairieland Community Supported Agriculture


Bringing farmers and

consumers together in

Champaign County, Illinois!

Hundreds of Community Supported Agriculture projects (CSAs) have started up across the U.S. and Canada over the last 10 years as a collective response of farmers and consumers to the ecological, social, and economic problems we are currently facing in agriculture and community. Prairieland CSA started in the winter of 1994 in Champaign-Urbana.

In CSA, Community members buy shares in the harvest from the farmer(s) and receive fresh organic vegetables for the whole season. With a direct partnership between local farmers and consumers, CSA can provide a living wage for the farmer and fresh, organic produce for the consumers while using environmentally sustainable practices, limiting waste, and decreasing excessive transport.
