I have been a member of this CSA for nearly a year now, and have been thrilled with everything. The baskets are bountiful and the vegetables and herbs themselves are consistently delicious. Uniquely among CSAs, the prices are more than reasonable -- my roommate was briefly a member of an East Austin CSA that charged twice the amount for comparable amounts of food. Being a member of this CSA has been easily the cheapest way to get local, organic produce, and the rates have been feasible for even myself, a university student. It's been wonderful to get such hefty baskets that it can be a struggle (a happy one) to eat it all before the next pick up!
NSG has all of the products (various, very high quality produce) one would expect from a much larger operation, with the huge benefit of actually being a relatively small CSA. Karla, the owner, is always there to talk to you and give you your basket during pick up, and has been extremely flexible in working with me and my ever-changing scheduling. She and all of the others involved in the running of the farm are extremely kind and helpful, and very willing to show you around and answer any questions. My experience has been very positive and I plan on staying a member as long as I'm in Austin.
