The history of CSAs in the US

Even if you don’t listen to the podcast, the introductory essay is a real eye opener on the origins of CSAs, and where many of them are today.  I knew the expansion of farmer’s markets had impacted local CSAs, but hadn’t really thought about the aggregators and co-ops.  Highly recommended read for anyone considering a CSA share this season.
