Over the past decade, the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model—where customers pay in advance for a share of a farm's harvest—has brought fair prices to farmers and fresh produce to customers across the country. But many of us can’t live on plants alone. Luckily, some enterprising producers have expanded the CSA model, selling pre-orders of delicious ingredients like dry-aged steaks, oysters and chocolates. Here are some of the unique offerings popping up in the US.
