Does anyone belong to the East Farms CSA in Utah? I'm thinking I want to join and was wondering what others thought about it. Please tell me what you think of their stuff and if they are dependable and anything else you think I should know. Thanks.

Do you have any information about the Community Food Co-op or any others. I haven't joined any yet. I'm still in the research phase. Any info would be great on any of the co-op/csas. Thanks.

Thanks for the co-op link. I think I am going to try it out. I am so excited! Do you know if East Farms is still taking people. I emailed and called but no response. I thought about finding them at the Farmers Market on Saturday and contacting them that way. We'll see. I really want to join a csa but I might have to wait until next year.

I just make sure to order a Farmer's Market Share when I place a Food Co-op order... it comes from East Farms. :

Yay! I just ordered the farmers market share from the co-op. I'm so excited! The place where we pick it up is right in our neighborhood so we can just walk there. I'm assuming the farmer's market share is only available until October or around there so after that we will probably try out the harvest share from that same co-op. Thanks for all the links and information! I really appreciate it.

We had a half share of East Farms CSA last year and it was great, but we live in Provo and the nearest pickup point was in Draper, which was a real pain. We got lots of good stuff every week, but with gas prices as they are, and the fact that we had to do that yucky drive every Thursday, we didn't do it this year.

It's true that they don't always answer emails and phone calls very quickly, or sometimes at all. They're pretty busy, though. I freaked out the first week because I didn't have the address of the pickup spot and it was our pickup day, and I called several times and left messages before hearing from them. But ultimately, they did call back.

Well today was our pickup for the Co-op. We did the Farmer's Market Share. It wasn't as big as I thought or hoped, but we are still going to do it next time, maybe just buy more. I talk about it in my blog (link in my signature).
