Awesome selection, way to go New Times for hitting the nail on the head with this choice. If you have never been a member of a CSA this is by far the best one in the valley and the best CSA I have ever been a member with (been in several and in different regions of the country). The owner, Kelly, is hands on and insists on producing and growing local produce in addition to only farming using organic methods. They also offer many add-ons to their weekly home or business delivery, like dairy, meat, eggs, etc., all of which is local as well. The best part is they are a true farm, not like some other CSA's. You can pick-up right at the farm if you are a member or several other valley drop-off locations. Kelly is great to work with and is happy to give you a tour of her farm and answer questions. Try getting that form some of the other supposed "farmers" at the many markets valley wide. Hats off to Desert Roots CSA, you guys rock!
Best CSA - 2011
Desert Roots Farm
Eating locally grown, fresh produce is nutritious, delicious, and good for the economy and environment, but sometimes acquiring the aforementioned produce is just so . . . difficult. There are more farmers markets and local food outlets than ever before. Desert Roots Farm, a Community Supported Agriculture farm (CSA) in Queen Creek, makes getting farm-fresh fruits, veggies, and herbs super-easy. Twelve-week seasonal memberships (or six-week during the summer) come in whole and half sizes. More than 10 pickup locations span the Valley. If that's not convenient enough, for an extra five bucks a week, they'll deliver the seasonal eats directly to your home or work.
