Local grower for fruits?

Original post made by FruitEater on Mar 9, 2008

A few weeks ago I saw a advertisement posted in Palo Verde for local fruit growers. The deal was that they would deliver a certain quantity of fruits to a "hub" ( someone's house ) ever week.

Can anyone post more details?

If you are using this service - how does this add up in terms of the quality and cost ( as compared to Milk Pail market or Costco ( costco for the bulk quantity, not necessarily organic fruits) )

Are you thinking of Frog Hollow? They have a CSA program (community-supported agriculture, I think it stands for) that delivers a weekly or every-other-weekly box of fruit.
