CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture.” It’s a way to skip the grocery store and get your eats directly from the farm. Head over to Robb Wolf‘s blog to learn how to find a CSA.

In case you missed it earlier this week, here’s my definitive Primal shopping list. All the food you need to fill your pantry, so print it out and head to the grocery store!

I think I am going to try out a CSA this year. It makes a lot of sense as it saves money and gives you a large variety of food. I always love trying new vegetables. Too bad I don’t live in Cali where I could have one year round! Maybe in 2012?

I’m not sure if CSA exists where I live, but it seems like I moght have the opportunity to start my own vegetable garden come spring, so I’m very excited about that!

Yeah for CSAs! We have an awesome one around here and my plan is to become a member when I get back up here in the fall. (I’m gone all summer for work so I’m not gonna join right now!) They are even doing a winter share box this year! Fresh greens, eggs, honey, citrus from AZ, the last of the local apples, etc. Good stuff!
So signing up for a CSA and buying some of our local meats are my plan for next winters foods! I can’t wait!

We don’t have a CSA here where I live, but we do have a wonderful organic farm that has a great market box that only costs $30 a week and it comes with lots of veggies and some fruits that are in season, or grown in a greenhouse.

THANKS for bringing attention to CSA’a – we’re too far out in the desert (with no other growers around us) to participate in supplying a CSA – but they are a super way to support local and get absolutely fresh foods –

And PLEASE everyone – get involved in stopping the spread of GMOs – Monsanto is outta control (our i should say firmly in control – of the USDA) and are out to infect all the main grain food supplies so “Organic” will be forced to accept GMOs in the future – PLEASE HELP STOP THEM!
Thanks
Ravi

Mark; been thinking about joining my local organic CSA for awhile. Guess this is the little nudge I needed to finally take the plunge into receiving produce that will be a mystery until I receive my weekly box. At $15 a week, it’s a hell of a deal.

Thanks also for the link to Al Kavadlo–I love his site and have been getting exercise ideas from him for several months now. Upbeat guy who demonstrates just how much of a badass you can be with only bodyweight exercises.

I joined a CSA last fall, finally finding one nearby, and never regretted it. Around here, autumn vegetables are sweet potatoes, collards and more collards, turnips, cabbage, carrots, and apples. It was a great challenge learning to cook with what was available, and I finally found a brilliant method for cooking collards (just contact me if you want the recipe). I’m really looking forward to the spring/summer boxes. It’s not cheap, but it’s not any more expensive than the supermarket, so it’s nice to support local businesses.

csa’s are awesome. instead of paying for my veggie share, i work trade 3 hours a week. i get to be out in the fresh air, exercise, learn, and snack on cherry tomatos and leave with a fat sack of freshies that i harvested. we also have a year round goat csa here in southern colorado where we can choose what we want delivered weekly from meat to milk to yogurt, butter, cheese, etc. and we love visiting the goats and seeing the newborns every season. yep, awesome!

we get a box of local organic produce delivered every other week, and we just found a meat farmer who delivers too, and their prices rock! We are getting 10 lbs pastured beef tomorrow, can’t wait!

With a CSA we did half share last year and for sure going full this year. It is great as we sometimes end up with things we can’t get at the grocery store and end up trying all kinds of new recipes with veggies we wouldn’t normally cook with. Also, wanted to say MDA your cookbook is great. All recipes we have tried are delicious! Love the Peach Caflouti.
