Community shared agriculture (CSA) offers consumers fresh produce direct from the farm and gives farmers a guaranteed market. However, many CSAs experience high turnover because members want a more diverse selection, better control over volume or they simply forget to sign up for a new season. Funny Duck Farms has solved this problem by developing an online system that allows members to order exactly what they want 50 weeks of the year. By broadening their selection and teaming up with five other local producers including a baker, an artisanal cheese maker and a food co-op, Funny Duck Farms is able to support twice as many members and produce less waste.
