Just found out about an organic share farm that I've heard about is actually just a few minutes away from me.

Wife said one of her retired coworkers commits 3.5 hrs a week at packing boxes in return for $40.00 worth of produce for yourself.
Wife said she'd like to do it also.

I guess when your retired you get bored after a while.

You sign up for a commitment of weekly or semi weekly produce for $40.00 a pop.

Unless you want to help out then its free in exchange for labor.

I just realized I will be in healing mode (probably a 10# weight limit for 6 weeks) right when I need to rebuild some of my planter boxes and plant.

Next year I'll expand on my planter boxes and be GTG.

Nice to have a back up resource so close.

We ran a small organic csa back in the 90s and had up to 50 shares. We did the work for shares thing sometimes and it worked well mostly. We don't do commercially anymore, but there are a half dozen farms that do, in the immediate area.

It is good for those that don't have the space or time to go outside and get some sunshine, exercise, and healthy local food to boot.

I have plenty of space to till a garden but the glaciers stopped short here left it hilly with a lot of rocks and clay.

Net on my list is sourcing grass fed hormone free beef and pork.
I found a source a county away where I grew up , the farmers last name is familiar I think I went to school with his cousin.
