The CSA Solutions Hub

The Hub collects information from CSA farmers, Small Farm Central staff, and others working with CSAs to bring you knowledge to help you move your CSA program forward including:

  • Shareable content for social media
  • Quick tips for online marketing

CSA Farming Report

Every year Small Farm Central uses the data gathered from our CSA farmers using the Member Assembler software to determine what is happening within the CSA movement by the numbers.

CSA Day

In 2015, Small Farm Central helped promote the first CSA Sign-up Day, a day to help promote joining a CSA.  The first event was held on February 28th, 2015.  Small Farm Central provided promotional materials and a centralized website for farms that were participating.  The 2016 CSA Sign-up Day will be held on February 26, 2016.  Small Farm Central intends to expand the event this year by sponsoring a video contest.
