I got a CSA from Scotch Hill Farm for two summers while I was living in Chicago and I loved it so much that I decided to do an internship with them! They grow a wide variety of different vegetables and herbs, and sometimes there will be a tasty surprise in there, like a melon or some of their delicious goat milk cheese. They deliver to several places around the city, which meant I could stick with them even when I moved. One great thing was that I could often get other products from them as well because Tony would bring eggs or their goat milk soap, as well as yogurt or cheese from neighboring farms. Tony and Dela encouraged me to come visit their farm and it was great to see where my veggies were coming from and how much time and energy they put into getting everyone a box of vegetables a week. Now that I am an intern here, I am learning how involved they are with other farmers in their community, through organizations like the Madison Area Community Supported Agriculture Coalition, the Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (CRAFT) and other similar organizations. I have nothing but great things to say about this CSA and would encourage anyone who is interested in local and organic food issues to purchase a share.
