Local CSA's

Growing season is almost upon us. Here are some links to local CSA's, for anyone who is interested in having a basket of fresh vegetables delivered weekly to a convenient central location.

What is a CSA? Here's the blurb from Local Harvest:
A CSA, (for Community Supported Agriculture) is a way for the food buying public to create a relationship with a farm and to receive a weekly basket of produce. By making a financial commitment to a farm, people become "members" (or "shareholders," or "subscribers") of the CSA. Most CSA farmers prefer that members pay for the season up-front, but some farmers will accept weekly or monthly payments.

My family has subscribed to Yellow Wood Farms. A half basket from April-October is $350.
