COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE (CSA): A HYPOTHESIS TEST OF MEMBERSHIP ACTIVITIES AND UTILITY

Jane Kolodinsky, Qingbin Wang and Leslie Pelch

No 21692, 1999 Annual meeting, August 8-11, Nashville, TN from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: 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.
