Great CSA, promoting great community
By: Erin R Brandy (Nov 6, 2010)
The Shire CSA was a great experience for us for our first year living in a new town. It is just a short bike ride from our house, and located in a lovely spot along the Spring Creek Trail. After a little bit of a slow start, the produce started rolling in and we enjoyed every bit of greens, tomatoes, peppers, melons, corn, and zucchini. The pickup days often turned into impromptu neighborhood get-togethers, with members bringing delicious food made from the week's share of produce. I appreciated the flexibility of Luke, the owner, in allowing some choice in the veggies we picked for our share, and sometimes even the days we picked up our share. We were able to purchase a working share for less money, in exchange for some hours of work on the farm--which we thoroughly enjoyed. I'm definitely looking forward to next year's surprises from the Shire.
