The CSA packages usually come in different sizes: small, medium and family. A family share is $30 a week with us.
We did this before we had our DD, and if you have don't like certain veggies/fruits or have any picky eaters, I suggest NOT doing it. We ended up with bok choi... Every week!!! It was new to us, we looked up recipes... We HATE it!! And beets, which we had so much of.
It was a waste for us, because there was too much of the 2 things we didn't like, and even with calling, they were unable/unwilling to leave those items out.

I would say, if they did 100% fruit... I'd happily do that. :D

I'm so sorry it turned out being things you don't like but I totally would have bought your beets and stuff you didn't want from you. I'm a veggie-aholic so I'm pretty happy with anything that comes along lol. If you still get them maybe someone else close by would be happy to do that? (I'm assuming the shipping wouldn't be worth it.) Beets lower inflammation and I have a chronic illness (inflammation effects everything from pain illnesses to heart disease to cancer to diabetes and anyone who has those has inflammation) - luckily I love them - they also lower the chances of alzheimers by how they effect the vascular system in the brain. Could you steam them in seasonings you love and hide the flavor by grinding them into stuff?

PS: What's DD?

DD= Dear Daughter.

I love my CSA. Its just me, DH and DD who is only a year old. I love the variety of getting fresh seasonal fruits and veggies that are organic and also help the local farmers get out from underneath government subsidies and debt. I am a vegetarian so I buy A LOT of veggies ordinarily (and organic) and I have found that CSA's save me approximately $100 a month. we currently pay $15 a week. Also I can or freeze anything left over from the week and store it for winter months when the taking isn't as bountiful.

I was looking into joining one instead of gardening. Some give you a set box of stuff each week and others let you fill a box of items you choose. The cost also varies regionally. Here in NH most of them cost approximately $30 dollars a week that are within a 1/2 drive of where I live.

I will be checking out pick your places this summer since I want to can this year.

Default Find local CSA, Co-ops and more

Supermarkets aren't the only place to buy groceries. Here is a website I found that will tell you the closest local family farms, CSAs and farmers markets. If you are like me and don't know much about all this stuff there's also information ont he website explaioning the difference between a CSA and a Co-op.

Some farms use organic methods other use semi-organic methods (only what is necessary). Either way you know who your food comes from, how its grown and support your local economy.
