    A chocolate CSA, what a wonderful idea! As a long time chocolate connoisseur and big fan of Burdicks, I’d love to be a member. Are you still enrolling people for the upcoming season? I’ve subscribed to the vegetable CSA out of Kickass Cupcakes for quite a few seasons now and find that it forces me, in a good way, to try new types of produce. I can only imagine that a chocolate CSA would have a similar effect.

    Best Regards,

      Hi Mike (and a few others who contacted me here) –
      Sorry for the delay. Yours are the first comments / questions I’ve received via the new WordPress site & I’d neglected to check in & see if people had commented. Being a blog it should have been obvious to me…

      There’s still room in the CSA for season #2. For more details click on the “Chocolate CSA” tab without scrolling down to either “season #1” or “season #2”. A little quirk I need to fix. You’ll also find a link to the enrollment form-

      Thanks for your comment / question-

      Eric
