CSA (community supported agriculture co-op)

For families interested in organic produce the cheapest option is a CSA share (community supported agriculture).  You pay up front, but then you get a weekly amount of organic produce. Broken up over the 20+ weeks, the price is very reasonable, usually $25-$30.  Families have participated in two.

White Plains CSA has the best produce of any CSA we’ve done.  The shares are a nice size, perfect for a family of four or five.  The pick-up is in White Plains, and there is no pick up during the Jewish High Holy Days (which can be a bit of a pain).
