A national survey of CSA operations was conducted to specifically explore how CSAs are adapting the traditional CSA business model and how these modifications seem to be affecting the profitability of the operation. The survey was conducted in late 2014. Detailed results of this study will be published in the spring of 2016, but the summary of initial analysis presented here is based on a poster presentation shared at the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association meeting in 2015. The link to the poster is provided at the end of this piece.
