Amazing selection for a CSA
By: Laura Schram (Feb 12, 2010)
When we were researching CSAs, what we found was that every other place we researched gives customers a box each week of what the farm has harvested that week. Carpenter's was different - we could select our share each week from their complete farmer's market selection. We were able to pick the veggies and fruits (and eggs!) we preferred, so that we knew none of the amazing produce would "go to waste" as it might if we had gotten more limited selections. To clarify, a friend shared with us that with her CSA, some weeks she got a huge supply of one vegetable with few other items, which was hard to consume unless she canned or froze it. We never had this problem with Carpenter's because they allow customers to select what they want in their share. Moreover, the folks who run the farm (and man the tables at the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market) are just plain great people. We had an amazing experience, and will be joining the CSA yet again this year!
