I got a note this week from an active CSA core group member with Roxbury Farm
in upstate New York. His name is Frank Scheib. He's been approached by a
food coop that's offering to let the CSA use the coop building as a
distribution site; the members would get an easy, convenient drop-off site,
and the coop would get more people coming through their store when they come
to pick up their food.
Frank asked me if I know about other CSAs using a similar linkage, so he can
get a sense of how it's worked out. Does anyone have any experience in this
area? If so, he would appreciate your calling him (518) 399-2206. You can
also e-mail me back here, and I'll relay the contacts on to him.
