What an interesting and informative story. It would be nice to know that other appreciate this innovation.

I'd like to know if Mr. Baxter has ever even purchased anything at Clear Spring Farm?
I joined their CSA last year and don't remember receiving any "near perfect" produce from them. In fact, most items were covered in mud.
I heartily support the idea of buying local, and I think it's great to get the word out there about CSAs. But I am weary of The Call's one-sided reviews of just about everything.

People could use these tunnels to grow their own tobacco. Then they wouldn't have to pay the discriminatory high taxes that Pennsylvania charges.

Clear Spring Farm (my childhood home) was originally a 200 acre farm owned by my grandfather,(George H. Kromer) and then my father. He farmed all 200 acres until retirement. The farm was passed along to my brother and he lost all but 15 acres. There is no way to grow all these vegetables on 15 acres! The additional produce is purchased wholesale and then resold to their customers.
