Yesterday I was out at the Grailville farm. It's run as a CSA --community supported agriculture. That means I paid $245 for the season and I contribute 16 work hours through the season and I get a share in all the produce from the farm (actually in this case a half share, but it is still some of everything they grow). It is a totally organic farm, about 20 miles from me.
Yesterday morning I helped with harvesting kale and chard (which were distributed to members 3 hrs later after being washed and sorted), weeding lettuce, onions. It was great being out there, nice weather. It means my experience of eating these veggies (what we got for our shares yesterday was garlic scapes, lettuce, chard, mustard greens, kale, spinach, broccoli) is very similar to eating my own veggies from my garden -- I know what the fields they were grown in look like, work of my hands went into them, I know that no poisons or synthetic chemicals were used on them, and they haven't been shipped across the country, and I am eating them within hours of when they were last in the ground.
I only have a very small area of yard suitable for growing any veggies; this is the next best thing and I love it! If you are interested
www.localharvest.org will tell you where the nearest CSA to you is. I only wish I had found mine a few years sooner! This is my second year as a member
