Dear PoPville – Can Anyone Recommend a Good CSA?

“Dear PoPville,

I was wondering if you could do a survey of CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs in the area. We got a share this year for the first time from a guy out in West Virginia and have been super disappointed. The program was expensive and all we get each week is a sack of stevia, wilted/rotting lettuce, and some extra dirty potatoes. To boot, he follows up each delivery with emails whining about how hard it is for him to bring us the shares we’re paying for, and telling everyone that we should drive to his farm on the weekends to weed his (unproductive?) garden.

We’re going to ditch this guy next year, but we like the concept. We’ve heard that there are great CSAs out there, and wanted to know which ones your readers think have worked out well.”

Ed. Note: We spoke a bit about CSAs back in May ’10 here.
