I recently withdrew from this CSA because I was very disappointed in the vegetable offerings of our basket - we bought a sweetheart share which is described as 1/2 chicken, 1lb pork, 1lb beef, 6 eggs, various dairy items, 2 oz mushrooms, and a selection of fruits and vegetables. The meat and eggs were great and consistent, but the vegetable offerings ranged from a few sprigs of basil or garlic scapes (and nothing else) to a load of plantain - which is a field grass that can be used for wound care or as medicinal tea - and this is in the middle of growing season when the local farmers' markets are brimming with gorgeous produce.
A complaint about the amount of produce in our box resulted in a suggestion that we come help plant some - even though we paid extra for a no-work share. When we withdrew from the share, no attempts were made for reimbursement. Thankfully I remain committed to supporting local agriculture despite this experience, but I will also be taking our support elsewhere.
