Making Money Mondays-Fiber CSA

Do you have wool but don’t know how to sell it?  A look into a fiber CSA might be something right up your alley.

A CSA is an abbreviation for Community Supported Agriculture.  Normally, this applies to vegetable farmers, where customers pay up front to get a certain amount of produce for a certain period of time.

Let’s apply that to fiber.  Customers purchase a share, and you can either supply them with the raw fiber, processed bats or yarn.

Now, I’m not an expert on this subject, but I have read that many farmers are using this model to supplement their income and help offset the cost of raising their animals.

Happy shearing!
