It's exactly the same food only with a different marketing plan. Instead of the farmer taking all the risks and getting all the rewards he shares it with the consumer who buys it before the harvest. So if there is a bumper crop the consumer gets more than anticipated. If the crop is small then the consumer gets less. Not much different than the conventional model. If there is a bumper crop, typically most or all producers will have a bumper crop and the price falls. The consumer than can buy more with his dollar. If the crop is meager then, again, typically all the producers will have a meager crop. Less of a harvest means higher prices for what there is.
