I’ve mentioned Glacier Valley CSA several times in the past (here and here). Now they’re finally offering box pick-up locations in Wasilla. All Around Tire and First Choice Physical Therapy have been added to the list of available locations. Lots of details about the CSA are at their website. It’s $35 a box, and they try to put as much local produce in the selection as possible. However, it looks like in the winter, there is a lot of supplementing with outside produce. A list of this week’s produce from their website:

week of january 10, 2010 box contents

From Alaska’s Glacier Valley Farm, VanderWeele Farm: Alaskan carrots | Alaskan Russet or Yukon potatoes-Farmer’s Choice | Alaskan beets

From Outside: certified organic Bosc pears | certified organic avocado | certified organic Honeycrisp apples | certified organic grapefruit | certified organic orange cauliflower | certified organic green butter Romaine lettuce | certified organic red dandelion greens | certified organic rainbow chard |certified organic garlic | certified organic Honeyboat Delicata squash

I haven’t tried Glacier Valley, but I’d love to hear from anyone else who has. We previously subscribed to Full Circle Farm for a year and enjoyed the convenience of picking up our produce box once a week. I like that Glacier Valley is a local CSA and strives to put local produce in their boxes (the winter season notwithstanding).
