I can't say I know anything about the Omnivore CSA, but I do use another one that  delivers to a much wider area than normal and offers a great selection:

Among the many nice things about this CSA is that it offers fruit, produce, dairy, meats, baked goods, NC seafoord, and even craft brewed beer & local wines from a lot of small operations in NC - so you aren't as limited as you are with joining a CSA from a single farm. You can order whatever you want that is in season online each Sunday and then coolers conveniently appear on your doorstep the following Friday or Saturday. You're not bound to a set dollar amount each week or paying for the whole year up front either. You can sign up for the min amt of $25/week, pay as you go, and still splurge on special occasions, or suspend deliveries for any week if your're going to be out of town for work or vacation. I like this one very much. Always high quality products.

I am forwarding a message about a CSA.  For those who do not know about CSA's.  You pay a monthly amount for shares of food.  If the crop is good you get more for your share, and if bad less.   You receive proportional to the harvest. If tomatoes are a bumper crop expect a lot of tomatoes for your share, etc..

I do not personally know about this particular CSA, but it is worth checking out.  If other members have knowlege of this CSA (good or bad), please inform the rest of us/
