Want another reason to join a CSA? From the Farm Aid website:

“When the food is sold directly from the farmer to you, you can be sure more of your dollar benefits the farmer who actually raised or grew your food. Through traditional food markets, only 19 cents of every food dollar goes to the farmer, while the remaining 81 cents goes to suppliers, processors, transportation costs, middlemen and marketers.”
