Organic. Local. Seasonal. Sustainable.

These are all popular keywords used prolifically by the media today. We know these methods are important, if not the ideal, but how realistic is it that the average American can support them? Well, there is a growing trend (pun intended) in food production and distribution that encompasses and embraces these, and many other, eco-conscious practices.

Imagine getting a large box every week filled with familiar farm favorites such as potatoes, carrots, peppers, onions, and garlic, as well as other less commonly known vegetables such as arugula, mizuna, bok choy, daikon, and kale. No grocery store lines, no weighing and inspecting at the produce stand, and no haggling at the farmer's market. Instead, you can take the guesswork out of produce shopping by joining a CSA.
