Two other great CSA's are Backyard Harvest by Russ Ohrt and Simpler Thyme Organic Farm, headed by Ann Lanigan.

Russ' share is chronically oversubscribed because it's just so good. Despite the fact that it would cost me more money, I keep suggesting that he raise his prices until demand no longer exceeds supply. The only way to get fresher vegetables than from Russ is from your own garden. He also sells through the Locke St. farmers' market.

Ann stopped delivering a few years ago, so if you get a share from her you have to pick it up on Highway 6 North, but her share has the best selection of produce I've ever seen in a CSA. She also sells eggs and vegetables at the farm gate and sources meat from organic farms (the lamb from Craigmeadow Keig is awesome, and at $5.50/lb dressed weight it's not terribly expensive) and organizes bulk dry goods orders from Grain Process.
