A great alternative to shopping at a store for your organic food is to join a community-supported agriculture (CSA) program. These programs run in cities and towns of all sizes, and if you don’t already have one you might want to look into starting one.
With a CSA, you purchase a share in the program and your money goes to pay a portion of a local farm’s operating expenses. The cost of these shares varies, and there are sometimes options to split a share with another family. What you get in return for your investment is regular deliveries of local farm fresh foods.
Of course, there is a certain level of anticipation while you wait to see what arrives in your box. You’ll have to be willing to adapt your recipes to what you receive, but the excitement of the unknown and the pride that comes from making use of what you are given will overcome any negative feelings towards the process.
