Does anyone know of a good CSA program in the WS/Clemmons area? I'm interested in joining one this season but have not been able to find any reviews of the good ones or ones to avoid.
Thanks!

I was just on the Local Harvest / Farmers Markets / Family Farms / CSA / Organic Food site and they have a long list of CSAs near the Winston-Salem area. I'm in the same boat as you, so feel free to share any info you might get along the way!

I've not been able to find anything online that would help you pick the best CSA, hopefully others will be able to lend their thoughts from previous experiences.

I thought that NC Farm Fresh or Goodness Grows General Store might be helpful, but they don't seem to have categories for CSAs. They could point you in the direction of local farms/markets though.

Along these same lines, you might try a fairly new farmer's market in the area. Krankies Farmers Market(Krankies Local Market | Facebook) will begin on April 20th and will be every Tuesday until November (10am-1pm). They'll be closing the block for the market each week and will have local farmers on both sides of street (Patterson Ave--between 3rd and 4th Street). The market is organized by Triad Buying Co-op Inc., and they visit each of the farms to make sure the products are truly local. Some of the farms at the market might also do CSA? If that's the case, it might be good to try before signing up.

The Triad Buying Co-op is not a "CSA" but it might meet your needs as well with getting local produce. Triad Buying Co-op

Here's another thing to look into...

You might also try contacting your county extension agent and see if they can provide any additional information. If you're in Forsyth: Cooperative Extension Service

Thanks for the suggestions. Since I posted this we joined the CSA at Callahaln Farms in Mocksville. We get delicious produce and eggs delivered to our house every Tuesday. Every Monday Farmer Dave sends out an e-mail so we know what we'll be getting. This is great since I now go to Krankies every Tuesday and I don't duplicate any items.
I've met several people who are in the CSA for Shore Organics and are very pleased with the quality of products. I buy from him at Krankies and can vouch for the deliciousness, especially the lettuce!

I know this is an older thread, but I wanted to add an additional suggestion which is fairly new.

Piedmont Local Food
Piedmont Local Food

It's not a "CSA" but actually more like an online farmer's market. You shop/pay online for products from local farms, orders are placed by Tuesdays and delivered to a local drop-off location on Thursdays of the same week. No minimum order, no membership fee, and you don't have to purchase every week.

We've tried a variety a products and have enjoyed everything so far.
