There’s a new CSA forming in the Morristown area! This is great news as shares are sold out in several other area CSAs. What is a CSA? CSA stands for community supported agriculture. The basic idea is that a farmer grows for a group of members who have purchased shares in the harvest in advance of the season — when the farmer needs the money. When the crops come in, the farmer delivers a weekly assortment of organic vegetables, herbs and some fruit.
John Krueger is the owner/operator of Starbrite Farm. He has a BS in environmental science from Cook College and has been farming organically since 2002.
Vegetables are grown in western New Jersey and delivered to Morristown every week for pick up. The season is 22 weeks long and begins June 18th and runs through November 12. Membership includes a weekly assortment of 6-10 varieties of organic produce, and members are expected to contribute one 4-hour shift to help with distribution (that sounds like fun!) — hanging out with other folks who enjoy fresh, organic, NJ grown produce. Interested? Hurry before the shares are all sold out.

Thanks for the link to LocalHarvest.org.
I’m going to Florida in July to get married and I will use that site to find some organic produce to line the tables!
