Abstract

Data from a national online survey, in conjunction with a probit and an ordered probit formulations are utilized to investigate the impact of: i) demographic characteristics, ii) lifestyle preferences, and iii) different information outlets, on the probability that a consumer is a CSA member, or, considers joining a CSA arrangement. The results indicate that while demographic characteristics do not affect the probability that a consumer is currently a CSA member, they have a statistically significant impact on the probability that a responder will join a CSA arrangement in the future. Lifestyle preferences had a statistically significant impact on both the probability that: i) a consumer is currently a CSA member and/or ii) is considering to join a CSA in the future. From the information outlets examined only word of mouth and online sources influence the probability that a consumer will join a CSA in the future. These findings may have important implications regarding the marketing strategies employed by CSA farm managers
