CSA (Community-supported agriculture) in the Bay Area

I've been half-assedly looking into joining a CSA/getting a box of produce weekly for a while now and really haven't made much head way on deciding. I'd love to hear personal recommendations or warning about being over-produced from Mefites. Worth it? What's your favorite farms or providers? [more inside]

What percent of adults have sexually abused a minor?

There's a lot of statistics online about how many children are sexually abused, but not much about how many adults are doing the abusing. I did read one article that mentioned in passing that about 1 in 20 men and 1 in 3300 women have sexually abused a child, but I think that was referring to only prepubescent children, not minors in general. The article was pretty old too, and there was no source for where they got that information. If anyone knows where I can find a reliable statistic regarding the percent of adults that sexually abuse children then I would appreciate it. [more inside]

Help us name our CSA Farm...

My husband and I hoping to be the farmers running a CSA farm at a new co-housing development (similar to Prairie Crossing, Ecovillage at Ithaca, or Davis Homes). At some point we will probably need to "pitch" our business - and we have everything but a name; it will undoubtably be easier with a name... and we're at a total loss. [more inside]

Best tools for setting up online store for CSA-type produce business?

You have an online store where customers pay in, say, monthly subscriptions. The customers are able to manage their account online. You also sell a few other items as one-offs via a webstore. None of this requires shipping as your customers pick up in person. What sorts of programs are you using? How do you deal with credit cards? What should this all cost? Any opinions about programs such as Member Assembler, CSAware, Farmigo or DeliveryBizPro? [more inside]

Corner grocer?

Do you have a corner grocer where you live? A market to pick up fresh veggies, meats or cheeses, or maybe a bottle of wine for that evening's dinner, that you can walk to? Apparently grocers make very little money, so the bigger the store, the lower delivery costs, etc. So why not have several small stores in one area to concentrate delivery? Or go with smaller trucks? Or partner with local farmers? Sort of like CSA for a city dweller.
