Got us hooked on CSAs!
By: Amanda Bensen (Feb 22, 2010)
My husband and I were nervous about committing to a CSA program, because we feared "biting off more than we could chew" (literally and financially).
But we liked the idea of eating locally and seasonally...so when I learned that Norman's Farm Market had a half-share option and a pick-up location only a mile from our home, we decided to give it a try for all three seasons (spring, summer, fall).
I was so impressed with the quality of the produce, the friendly staff, and their willingness to be flexible---allowing us to skip one week and "double up" the next with advance notice. Also, they allowed us a certain amount of choice in which fruits and veggies we got (many weeks, they simply said "you can fill this basket with any of those items," for example). As a result, we never ended up with anything we didn't want to eat.
Our experience was so good that we plan to sign up again this year, this time for a full share (we'll freeze and can the extras)!
