This year, community-supported agriculture (CSA) programs in the Washington area offer an especially wide array of options for shares, delivery-pickup and products beyond produce.

Here's how CSAs work: Customers pay an annual membership fee in advance to cover farm production costs. The farmer provides a "share" of the harvest - a box of seasonal produce - on a weekly basis for a predetermined number of weeks. On most farms, a full share is enough vegetables to feed a family of four (two adults, two children) or two vegetarians for one week. (Half-shares and mini-shares are also available.)

These farms still had shares for sale as of mid-February. If not otherwise noted, the share is made up solely of seasonal vegetables and fruits. (Some might include, for example, eggs or flowers.)
