This may be a bit out there, but, I'm wondering if there are any local farm programs in Madison that deliver boxes of produce to houses that one can subscribe to, like a fruit-of-the-month sort of thing?
I've gotten wine clubs and exotic fruit-of-the-month as a gift for my folks. I have no interest in fruit-of-the-month from places like Harry and David --how many perfectly waxed apples can one eat?
What I thought would be nice would be a produce-of-the-month club (not just fruit), supplied by local organic (ideally) farms, maybe as a small box with variety each month.
This may be wishful thinking --produce like greens are more perishable, and a box that is not too much for 2 people may not be economical from the supplier perspective. Nonetheless, no harm in asking. Is anyone aware of such a possibility in Madison? I read about something called the Coalition for Sustainable Agriculture, but that seems much more involved, and requiring pick-up at pretty inconvenient places. (I think my mom has significantly reduced her visits to the farmers market as the crowd and traffic have become annoying.)
