CSA Thoughts

Hi all,

I am semi-frantically trying to settle on a CSA for this year while I still have time. I did a search, but most of the advice I found seems to be a couple of years old. I see mentions of Full Belly Farm and Two Small Farms (now split into Mariquita Farm and High Ground Organics). What other CSA programs have you used? I've been using Capay Valley Growers for about a month. This was an easy, flexible decision since they allow you to pay per week and cancel anytime. They also give you the option to put weeks on hold, meaning you don't pick up a box and you aren't charged for the week. I've been pleased with the selection, and they seem able to offer a large variety since they work with about 15 farms (including Full Belly Farm, which has gotten praise on this board). Because there's no commitment, I am trying to decide whether to stick with what I have or switch gears and make a commitment to another program.

Has anyone else had any experience with Capay Valley growers? What are your thoughts about working with a collaboration of farms rather than a single farm?
