Our mission is to help create a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture Project) within reach of every neighbourhood of the UK.

That’s an ambitious mission, and we’ve got a long way to go.

If any of these things interest you, you’ve come to the right place. As you’ll find out, the network and this website is a rich source of information, inspiration and knowledge.



On the 18th of March 2024, the staff and directors of CSA Network UK visited four CSAs on the Gower Peninsula, near Swansea in South Wales. They were four very different CSAs, but they all shared one common feature. They all saw the benefits of running their farms as a CSA because of the advantages the CSA farm business model gave them.
