    For those looking for lists of CSA farmers in chicagoland try localharvest.org or localbeet.com. I'm one of the farmers, so I'll leave the reviews to someone else!

      Peasants' Plot CSA rules! Their produce is organic and excellent, and they offer several different pick-up locations in Chicago. They even throw a party every year called the Low Down Hoe Down on the farm in Manteno. Check them out.
