My friend Dale Allred has started a CSA (community-supported agriculture) called Jacob’s Cove in Orem, Utah and has expanded capacity, 200 more shares now available. A small 1 adult share is 5 to 7 pounds each week for 3 months (13 weeks).
Small share (1 adult) $208
Medium share (2 adult) $390
Large share (4 adult) $715
Those who get a share now will have first rights to the year-round production. Otherwise there won’t be more shares until next summer (and that will be dependent on expansion).
Deliveries begin end of June or early July. I really like that if you go out of town, you can opt out that week and they’ll tack that delivery onto the end–no lost produce (I did not have the option in the other CSA I was in).
The Allreds are serious about taking back our food. One of the very best things you can do (besides planting your own garden) is support local organic agriculture. They are growing 60 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, all colors of bell peppers, cucumbers, melons, squash, beans, peas, beets, carrots, eggplant and–he asked me what I wanted since my readers will be key in supporting his CSA–TONS of varieties of greens!
