Living in the Bay Area has lots of perks but it doesn’t always include enough space to grow your own garden’s worth of vegetables. Lucky for us we’ve got Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs in abundance, allowing families farm-direct access to the full spectrum of fresh fruits, veggies and grains delivered right to your door. Click through to see all our fresh picks for best CSA boxes!

Tara Firma Farms

In 2009, these Petaluma farmers set off on a mission to create a source of food produced with great soil and good integrity, that brought the community together, and that allowed their consumers full access to their farm. From this mission sprang education to the public with regular free farm tours every Saturday & Sunday at noon so folks can learn where their food comes from, how we all can be accountable in the process. Through this farm's production, and our network of family farms throughout Sonoma and Marin counties, your fam can also get their inner carnivore on with plenty of pasture raised beef, pork, chicken, lamb, and turkey right alongside their organic fruit, eggs, cheese, and vegetables.

Cost: Prices range from $55 up to $95 for flagship Premium and Family Meat Shares. Organic Vegetable Shares run $25 for a regular size box, and Organic Fruit Shares are $10 per box.
