CSA in (or near) Wichita, Kansas
I've looked high, low and under a few beds, but I have not been able to find a CSA program in Wichita. Odd, since this is the midwest, and there are more farms than bars (ok maybe not, but it's gotta be at least a dead heat).
Can anyone help? Am I missing something?

Sorry to say... I don't know of any CSA farms in our area either, so we all do the next best thing and use our very nice farmers markets that are available on both the East and West sides of town. Other than that I would advise you to check the local paper under the "Good Things To Eat" category for fresh offerings from the farms directly. I personally like Beck's Farms which is just South of Newton. Also look for roadstands South of town near Haysville, and if you see a fresh produce sign in someone's yard, don't be shy about knocking on the door. Good luck in your sleuthing, unfortunately it's something we're used to doing in Wichita.
We've been alerted to the fact that this link is no longer active, but this search for local CSAs near Wichita should work:
You can also simply search from the homepage: http://www.localharvest.org/
We can't vouch for any of these, we're just trying to provide an update for the broken link.
I do not live there now, but used to have a small farm near Wichita. I visited Cox Farms many times as a child when visiting family, and have fond memories of picking bushels of peaches straight from the trees. Greatness with a pit.
