If you are interested in joining a farm CSA, you are probably beginning to talk with friends to see who they recommend.
A CSA is community supported agriculture where a farm offers a subscription and a customer offers an up front payment to provide seed money to the farmer in return for a weekly box of produce, or other items. I like the link to a direct farm and have signed up for another year with Vollmer’s Farms.The strawberries are a big attraction.
There are a number of different options. One I heard of recently was CarolinaFarms. Joseph Allen of Carolina Farms says:
We service Wake, Harnett, Durham, Cumberland, and surrounding counties. We are a year round co-op that works with several farms across the state of North Carolina. We offer home delivery of produce and meats and are working to expand our list everyday. You can find more about Carolina Farms at www.carolinafarms.org
Let me know if you have had success with other CSAs in our community.
