Program Description
CFA is a non-profit association of more than 850 members in North and South Carolina, committed to creating healthy and thriving communities of farmers and consumers who are supported by local and organic agricultural systems that are environmentally responsible, economically sound, and socially just. Membership is open to all.

CFSA’s mission is to support and expand local and organic agriculture in the Carolinas by inspiring, educating and organizing farmers and consumers. CFSA was founded in 1979 by a group of farmers, gardeners and consumers who envisioned developing a network that would foster the growth and distribution of organic food in the Carolinas. In 1982, CFSA was incorporated as a non-profit organization.

Currently, CFSA engages in the following activities directed at fulfilling its mission:
  • Organizing four regional farm tours attended by over 4000 people.
  • Education and information exchanged via a bi-monthly membership newsletter and website:
  • Organizing Organic Certification trainings.
  • Production and distribution of the Carolina Guide to Local and Organic Food.
  • Organizing the Annual Sustainable Agriculture Conference.
  • Conducting research on marketing and production of organic crops.
  • Building coalitions with like-minded organizations and businesses.
  • Providing technical assistance to farmers.
  • We also have active regional chapters; produce an annual membership directory; provide an intern referral service; and advocate for local and organic policies at the local and national level.
