Since so many of you are fans of CSAs, thought I'd pass on a development in the movement: meat CSAs. It's a sad commentary on how far away we've gotten from the days of yore or even from my hometown in India where the fact that the meat you're putting in your body once grazed somewhere near you... is a given.
