The CSA selection

I investigated my options and I decided to get my CSA from Dillner Family Farm.  There were tons of great options in the Pittsburgh area, and my main criteria were location of the drop-off point, cost, and whether the farm minimizes the use of pesticides and fertilizer.  With the last criteria it was tough to decide between organic and non-organic farms but I read quite a bit about how the "organic" certification can be difficult for small farmers to get because there is a lot of cost and paperwork associated with the certification itself.  I like that although Dillner Family Farm is not certified organic they use sustainable farming methods.  

Here's the farm website:
