Do you belong to a CSA that has deliveries/pick-up locations in Chicago? In Lakeview, specifically? Which do you recommend? Which would you avoid?
I've checked the offerings for my zip code at local harvest
and am now looking for feedback from anyone who has belonged to any CSA which serves Chicago. We will probably split the share between two households (four adults and one infant). Are we better off going with a half-share for four adults? Two of us are good cooks, and another of us really likes to cook, but we do all work and don't want there to be much waste.
We're interested particularly in King's Hill Farm
, Mike and Clare's farm
and Fat Blossom Farm
. I have written them for more information about what to expect in the boxes, but am looking for personal experiences with any of the farms to help us make our decision. Both households have a car, but all four adults work, so we absolutely cannot
drive to the suburbs or the farm to get the weekly box. Weekday pick-ups from any of the green city markets would be okay.
If it goes well, we might move up to one of the ones that offers eggs, dairy and grass-fed meat.
