Yes! I am glad to hear from others who like Carolina Grown.

Carolina Grown is the best subscription agriculture company in the 
state. They serve their customers elegantly. They buy direct from local 
growers and producers and deliver to their members' homes or other 
specified locations. They have been in business for nearly eight years 
and I fully endorse them. Carolina Grown, utilizing a carefully prepared 
business model and website, is expanding its customer base at a rapid 
rate; I hope they become a huge success. They could go a long way toward 
keeping small, local, sustainable growers and producers in business 
through the favorable relationship they establish with them. Theirs is 
an ingenious system, one that should have been adopted many years ago in 
this state, to help growers who need adequate market access, a Co-Op 
CSA, not just a marketing coop or csa or public market. It has built in 
efficiency and reduction in energy use (travel time and associated 
expenses and demands on vendor's time away from the farm).
