Ours does this as well and I have thought about it, but by the time I heard
of it the donation window had closed.  I however thought of donating baskets
of vegetables.  A few 3 ish.  So the winners would come to farm and get
generous amount during prime season (when tomatoes are ready).  It gets you
publicity lets a few people sample and you don't have to worry about someone
who joins the farm on impulse and doesn't really understand CSA.  The folks
that win the basket of course get a flyer an have the winter to think about
it.  Beth
