The other day a reader sent me a question --what are some local farms that do CSAs, community supported agriculture, where you subscribe to a farm and regularly (usually weekly) you get a box of food -- veggies, fruits, and sometimes meat, eggs or dairy too.
In the past I've used both Orchard Country Produce and Earth Spring Farm, and generally liked both. Earth Spring had a pickup in Mt. Pleasant while Orchard Country had one convenient to my coworker's office, and both had a lot of good stuff. Of course, I'm no wiz in the kitchen, so it was sometimes tough when we got a whole bunch of some ingredient I didn't know how to use. I like dill, for example, but have no idea what to do with a pound of it. (My solution was to add it to ramen, which probably automatically canceled out any health benefit.
So that's where I ask you all for some more suggestions -- what are other good CSAs you'd recommend, or even not recommend?
