I have been a member of the Bluebird Gardens CSA for 4 years and have signed up for a fifth year. They are located by Fergus Falls but make deliveries to the Fargo Moorhead area and various towns in Minnesota. Depending on what size share you purchase you will get a weekly box of vegetables from about the 2nd week of June through the middle of October. Click the link above for a listing of share sizes and prices. New for 2015 you can purchase “Build a box” shares instead of weekly boxes and you can determine what will be in each box. Another difference of the “Build a box” is that you will need to go to the farm to pick them up. I have been getting the share size and it works out to $20 a week for the summer. In most cases you will receive more than if you were to spend $20 at a grocery store or farmers market. It is an even better deal if you freeze or can extras from the weekly boxes or if you pick more at the farm.
It is a great way to get a variety of vegetables and also to try things that may be new to you and you normally would not purchase.
If you join by December 20th your name will be put into a drawing for a variety of prizes.
Along with the weekly deliveries, you will also receive a certain number of tickets (depending on the size of share you purchased) to go to the farm if you want and pick more of certain produce.
I have really enjoyed being a member and receiving weekly boxes the past few summers.
There are other CSAs in the area, but Bluebird Gardens is the only one I am familiar with.
