Community Supported Agriculture

Not that I'm against communism or anything, but I was surprised to discover that there is government-supported collective farming in America. Except they don't call it that (probably to avoid some negative associations)--it's called "Community Supported Agriculture."

The raison d'etre?

"Community Supported Agriculture consists of a community of individuals who pledge support to a farm operation so that the farmland becomes, either legally or spiritually, the community's farm, with the growers and consumers providing mutual support and sharing the risks and benefits of food production."

I am wondering what it means for the farmland to become spiritually communal.

Anyway, that's all. I love America.

Oh my goodness, do you want to know the weirdest part of all this? When we were visiting Jeff's sister in AZ, her husband introduced us to a little game he invented called Communist Barnyard. THE GAME IS COMING TRUE!
