Discounts on Local Food

Are you missing those once abundant fruits of summer? I know I am going through the basil pesto and canned tomatoes in my pantry like nobody's business. There is good news if you are willing to invest in a summer Community Supported Agriculture program early- you can get discounts on your membership!
Fertile Crescent is offering $25 off if you join before the end of January.
The cost of a full share for 20 weeks is $500.
The cost of a half share for 20 weeks is $300.
On farm pick up is $475 for a full share and $275 for a half share.
Adam Bressa and Darbi Jewell have been farming for in Green Bay for several years, and are expanding their markets and CSA pickups this year to include Byrd House, South of the James and the Market at St. Stephen's. Check out their lovely site for more info on their farm and how to sign up for their CSA!

Frog Bottom Farm sent this info for interested 2010 CSA members:
Next year we're doing an extended summer season -- from the first week in June through Thanksgiving week. That's 26 weeks. The full share will be $650 and the half share will be $350. Since this is more than last year, and a big amount for some folks to pay as one lump sum, we will offer payment plans.

For folks who pay in full by January 15, we're offering a discount -- the full share will be $600, and the half share will be $325.
I was a member of Frog Bottom's CSA for both the summer and winter season, and have really enjoyed talking food with Ali and Lisa. Check out their gorgeous farm site here.

Also, if you want local food NOW, Fall Line Farms is offering a huge discount on their memberships. Join for only $35.00, and enjoy shopping from 50 local vendors. Learn more about this amazing co-op here.
