Community Supported Agriculture.
Basically, customers/members pay a set amount per year for a share of
that year's production; and expect to get farm product (often weekly,
for a set number of weeks during the year); with exactly what's in the
shares varying by season and according to what's doing well on that
farm. They generally also expect a more direct connection with "their
farm" than they'd have from getting their food by other routes.
Beyond that, details vary wildly. Here's a good web site to start from:
-- Rivka; Finger Lakes NY, Zone 5 mostly
Fresh-market organic produce, small scale
