Always one of the most popular CSAs in the Pikes Peak Region, Venetucci offers shares and a “choice package,” where you use a weekly credit to buy the produce of your choice. However, shares for the 2012 season sold out before March 1. You can still sample their produce at the Colorado Farm and Art Markets through the summer.
