  13. 13. From CSA to Multifarm CSA: The Story of Local Harvest I don’t think we could have skipped over those hard early years. The only way to get around that is to have a single leader who makes all the decisions. That would not have been a true cooperative. So, looking back, I’m glad that we spent a year coming up with the paperwork and making rough plans, and also feel that the first three or four years of “discussion” have paid off. Now, we have all agreed and bought into the system that we have created, and we all have a sense of ownership. That has been the glue that has held us together. —Dave Trumble
