CSA recommendations for 2012?

bobabear | Jan 9, 2012 08:33 AM

Hi everyone!

I have been contemplating joining Farm Fresh to You for a while now, but finally decided to sign up yesterday. Unfortunately their Yelp reviews were dismal - lots of spoilage, poor selection and terrible customer service. This convinced me otherwise. I came searching on Chowhound and learned about CSAs via two very helpful threads - http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/764780 and http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/692288

However, both threads are a bit dated and I'm looking to hearing your recommendations + experiences on CSAs from last season (mid-2011 and on).

Specific questions I have are:
- Your favorite CSA? Why?
- Your experience from 2011
- Freshness and variety of the boxes? I'm concerned about spoilage because the FFTY reviews were pretty bad.
- Any other suggestions/thoughts?

I'm definitely going to do a 4 week trial, as it seems most of the CSAs offer this option. And for reference, I'm buying for 2 adults - we eat quite a bit of vegetables and thought a CSA would be a great way to try new and fresh fruits & veggies!

Thank you!
