I'm interested to know whether CSAs typically request that payments for shares be sent directly to the farm/farmer or be made to the CSA. Our CSA currently asks for one payment, to the CSA, which includes a $15 or so administrative fee, then cuts one check to the farm for all the member payments, which is easier for the farm. But we think we want to switch to have payments go directly to the farm. In that case, we aren't sure whether to ask for a 2nd payment to the CSA for a $15-$20 administrative fee or ask for the full amount to go to the farm and then ask the farm to cut us a check for the full administrative fees? (and if so if we cover any taxes the farm has to pay on receipt of the extra amount)? Thanks for any feedback!
