Lifestyle factors, not demographics, tied to CSA membership - UF/IFAS News

Community-supported agriculture (CSA) allows farmers to directly market their products to local consumers who pay a subscription in exchange for a share of the farmer’s expected yield. New UF/IFAS research shows that lifestyle factors such as vegetarianism or belonging to a gym can help predict current and future membership in CSA: http://bit.ly/2rAXtlF.

High earners with advanced degrees are less likely to join a CSA program in the future, University of Florida study finds.
