You Get Fresh, Local Produce Delivered Right To Your Door

The sweet corn at Moore Farms in Bullard is famous at farmers' markets from East Texas to Dallas, but on this morning Cleve Moore is picking it for the members of the CSA farm which his family has been operating since 2003.

"We have 43 acres. We dedicate about one and a half to the CSA program," says Cleve.

CSA members pay a pre-set fee at the beginning of the season which farmers use to supplement their operating costs.

"It's really good, because we can purchase seed, potting soil, improvements on the greenhouse, fuel for the tractors and just all the operating funds we need," says Cleve.

Then, during the harvest, he boxes up the seasonal produce, loads it in his truck, and delivers it to his customer's front door.

It's about 16 weeks of produce averaging $30 a week. Three year member Andrew Clyde says the quality of produce is well worth the expense.

"From field to my house, it's probably hours instead of days or weeks or months, so we know it's fresh, and we know it's grown right here where we live," says Clyde.

As he heads to the next house, Cleve says the CSA is a delicious option for families and a way of ensuring the livelihood of local agriculture.

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
