The farmer lays out baskets of the week's vegetables.
Some farmers encourage members to take a prescribed amount of what's available, leaving behind just what their families do not care for.
Most CSA farmers feel a great sense of responsibility to their members, and when certain crops are scarce, they make sure the CSA gets served first.
Still, it is worth noting that very occasionally things go wrong on a farm - like they do in any kind of business - and the expected is not delivered, and members feel shortchanged.
Here, rather than making up a standard box of vegetables for every member each week, the members load their own boxes with some degree of personal choice.
Many times, the idea of shared risk is part of what creates a sense of community among members, and between members and the farmers.
If a hailstorm takes out all the peppers, everyone is disappointed together, and together cheer on the winter squash and broccoli.
In our experience, if the situation seems regrettable but reasonable - a bad thing that in good faith could have happened to anyone - most CSA members will rally, if they already know and trust the farmer.
These people are more likely to take the long view, especially if they have received an abundance of produce in the past.
For example, a produce farmer might create a partnership with a neighbor to deliver chickens to the CSA drop off point, so that the CSA members can purchase farm-fresh chickens when they come to get their CSA baskets.
