Because the PCCSA is a cooperative CSA, we get our food from
more than one farm. We are able to support several farmers
around the area and in turn provide a variety of produce
throughout the year. This includes vegetables and fruit, option
to purchase meat, eggs, and other locally-produced goods in
the CSA Store.
Locally-Grown All of the food in the PCCSA comes from
Arizona, with an average distance of 40 miles to our farms. In
contrast, food in the grocery store has traveled an average of
1,500 miles before reaching the eater.
Direct Marketing Through buying the produce directly from the
farmers, our shareholders are paying less than retail prices for
the freshest produce possible, and the farmers are making well
over wholesale. Farmers selling through grocery chains, on the
other hand, receive an average of 6-8% of the price consumers
pay for packaged and processed goods.
Conservation and Stewardship The increased income received
through direct marketing can go into cover crops, improving
the life span of the soil, or simply enable the farmers to employ
the labor necessary to grow crops organically.
