2013 CSA Guide

We are pleased to present the 2013 Guide to Community Supported Agriculture.  Our database was compiled and created by By .

With 90 farms listed, we believe it is the most comprehensive CSA Guide for Chicagoland. In 2013, we continue to expand the Guide to include farms outside of Chicagoland in downstate Illinois, Southeast and South Central Wisconsin, Northern Indiana, and Southwest Michigan.  For additional information on this year’s guide see here.
