I don't need there to be a store, a CSA-type-thingy would do just peachy for me, but I wonder if there's aaaaaaaaanywhere I can get this kind of food in Massachusetts?
leftovers that someone doesn't want?
Places you can go to steal sepp holzer's food?
It'll be a while before my nut trees give me sweet love, and I'm hungry and want to be better nourished.
The only BioDynamic-ish thing I can get around here is yogurt. I appreciate that and am eager for more.
I'm thinking of this thread to be more buyer-focused than seller-focused, like "here's where I get some really good stuff" or "here's how I found a supply," more than "buy my thing because it's great (except if you don't live in New Zealand)". Maybe there are creative outside-the-box solutions people have found to this question? stories about "the one time I had a real peach that tasted 8,000 times better than what you get at the store" and didn't cost what it costs at the farmer's market? here's a really spend-smarter-not-harder CSA model I've found out about?

Thought I'd bump this post and see if anyone has any leads. The links posted were good but I am wanting to find GREAT!!!
--really good mineral content (not just the big ones, the micronutrients)
--leaves the soil better than it was, and the world (that is, doesn't improve soil at expense of something else somewhere else)
--carbon negative or making progress toward it (I am happy to have my money support real forward progress)
--ideally I want a conscious cocreative gardening approach.
Any other things you'd include that I'm not thinking of?
Can it be done? can I find the Ultimate CSA? the Incredible HUSP of CSA's? There's only one way for this farm snob to know--by trying.

On my farm I grow about 60 species of food producing plants, and hundreds of species of weeds in the same space.

Who's willing to pay to have that research done?

I don't know how something like that could be measured... Improved for which species on what timescale? How does one properly account for expenses Or carbon flow?
