Our Favorite CSAs (The best priced seeds in town!) is their CSA (Probably the best CSA there is. They have put into practice all the ideals of the perfect CSA. They can do so because they are very experienced and the best farmers we know. They do not just Farm they are very liber or well-educated in many areas. We could not have done our farm without them!) (Joel Salatin) Laura the owner/farmer has been our mentor, inspiration, and the entire reason we did this. We had never heard the word CSA until she told us about it in 2006! (When we grow up, we hope to be like Quail Hollow Farms)
