ACROSS CANADA there are rising numbers of small farms that sell annual memberships to local residents to help cover the costs of operation and, in return, allow us to share the bounty of the season. We also share the risks—weather and other factors including pestilence— beyond the control of the farmer. The cost of a share and the crops grown vary from farm to farm, as do the pick-up arrangements for our weekly box of produce. This programme is known as Community Supported Agriculture, and is becoming increasingly popular.
