Until last year I had no idea what the CSA program is = (Community Supported Agricultural program). I'm sure there are CSA programs all over the country but I only know about ours with Miller Farms from Loveland, CO.
Here is how it works - There are 2 different subscription levels - Full family plan = $600.00 and the Small family plan = $400. Since there are only 2 of us we went in with another couple so it cost each of us $300.00.
Each week both of us can fill a 1/2 bushel basket with all the veggies they offer at several Farmers Markets they anchor in Colorado Springs. It has been interesting to see how the season progresses as to what is offered.The plan lasts from the middle of June to Oct which is 20 weeks.
Here is our haul each week so far.
