CSAFarms.com was founded in 2011 by Denny Chapin, James Schergen, and Cody Barrus.
The genesis of the website was simple. Denny was looking to purchase a CSA Share to pickup at his local farmers market because he cares about fresh, healthy food. He went online to lookup the vendors at his farmers markets. After much headbanging and frustration, Denny simply gave up; he couldn't find hardly any of the farms online, and if they did have a website, they didn't accept payments through their site.
In place of this frustration came an idea: why not create a comprehensive directory of CSA Farms in the United States with a really simple payment processing system for Produce Lovers and Farmers to use?
And that, my dears, is how CSAFarms.com was born.
