A little winter frost shouldn't keep farm food from your table. Especially 
now that Farm to Family offers a winter CSA. The company started as a 
mobile grocer, selling local produce from a converted school bus in 
Southern Virginia and visiting schools to teach nutrition. Now that most 
farmers' markets have closed for the season, owners Mark and Suzi Lilly are 
visiting Washington to fill the void. Their biweekly program--which lasts 
for eight weeks--will stop in Northwest and Capitol Hill to drop off a 
customizable menu. Members can sign up for the full bounty or any 
combination of meat, dairy, bread, dry goods and vegetables (the base 
subscription of vegetables and dry goods is $100). The full lineup ($290) 
is a who's who of the region's best purveyors. Milk, raw-milk cheese and 
butter come from the sprawling Mountain View Farm 
http://www.mountainviewfarmproducts.com/cheese.html . Polyface 
http://www.polyfacefarms.com/ and Green Fence farms supply meats, but 
there are also local clams and oysters, whole-grain or gluten-free breads, 
maple-based products, and vegan Twin Oaks http://www.twinoakstofu.com/ 
tofu. If vacations get in the way, you can prorate or split membership. And 
if you want to stock up, the CSA accepts additional orders for whole 
turkeys and game meats. Farm to Family CSA; 804-767-8570 or

A little winter frost shouldn't keep farm food from your table.

Especially now that Farm to Family offers a winter CSA.
