The Portland Area CSA Coalition (PACSAC) connects consumers and farmers through Community Supported Agriculture. We help people find the right farm for their family, and we help farmers create sustainable, thriving businesses. We believe a vibrant, environmentally sound local food system is created by building relationships between farmers and households through healthy, accessible, local food.
