This study examines whether membership activities of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms can yield utility directly. Results based on survey data from Vermont suggest that time spent in picking up produce from a CSA farm and time spent in cleaning and putting away produce at home do yield utility directly and the direct utility from picking up is greater than that from cleaning and putting away.
