I'm a member of the Park Slope Coop which is its own kind of local food animal in itself so I have a bit of a problem joining a CSA, but if it weren't for the fact that I'm already working 2.5 hours a month for my food I would seriously consider joining and supporting the Upper Meadows Farm CSA. Members of the CSA pick up their shares at the Farmer's Market at the Old Stone House Park on 3-5th Street & 5th Avenue. In fact if they keep sending me newsletters with links to the haul of the week that includes things like; cardoons, nettles, onions, kale, and amaranth, I may break down and just join. Their rates seem very reasonable and the folks at their booth are very nice. Their site has a photo of the farmer playing a trombone to some happy looking geese so what's not to like? If you don't want to join you can buy most of these things at their booth.
