Your own personal local farmer!

Check out this AP article about the burgeoning community-supported agriculture program movement: For a flat fee, members essentially commission a share of a farmer’s seasonal crop, getting a hearty box of fruit and vegetables each week.

As a big fan of the buy local ethos I’d really love to see this take off, and I’m very much going to look into seeing if there are participating farmers here in my area. Growers ’round here have phenomenal sweet corn, tomatoes, and other veggie/fruit goodness, and that price tag seems rather cheap considering how much I spend a season in produce.
