The last few years I'm hearing more and more about CSAs, and wondering if anyone in the ORV is either buying or selling through them?

As I understand it, the buyer has a contract with the farmer to receive regular, scheduled deliveries (usually at a chosen pick up spot) of fresh produce. The idea seems to be catching on around the country and growing in popularity. I'm curious if it's a money saving way to acquire fresh produce, or perhaps just a way of getting fresher product while supporting local agriculture? Hopefully it's both!

Let me look around Neal.
I remember someone talking about doing it at DG.

When we lived in Dayton we used to have a Mennonite guy they called the Egg Man.
He would deliver eggs and poultry weekly.
But that was 30 years ago....
