That doesn't sound bad.

For 2 of us. That would be a lot.  If you get a lot for the money. Your family can eat it all. That's not really that bad a price. Considering how much produce costs these days.

if i were able to do that for the winter months only then it might be worth it.  The other week i spent almost $130 on produce that lasted about 8 days for us...   :/

How does one find something similar to that nearby? This one doesn't go to South Carolina but I would love for it to! ;)

It is cheaper to just go buy it. We eat primarily produce so those boxes don't last long with is. I think bountiful baskets is cheaper

Working at a CSA is great!

Quoting michiganmom116:

We eat plenty of healthy veggies and it would be worth the $25 for us....if we didn't already have a huge garden in the summer.

As it is, I plan to work at a local CSA garden this summer and in payment for 40 hours of work total, I'll get a box of produce every week.

It seems like a lot to me, but this time of year I get frozen veggies.  I guess it depends on what you get in the package.
