Interesting CSA Model!

A friend of mine is moving soon and has been researching CSAs in her new location. She came across this unique CSA model. I think it's a great idea!

In a nutshell, folks buy a CSA share like usual, but instead of receiving a pre-packed preconceived box of goodies, they get "bucks" equivalent to what they paid for their share (actually they throw in a little extra) and use it like money, just picking out what they like in person at the farm. It's up to them to come by and use up their dollars. And seems like it would take some pressure off of the farmer. Seems to me like an awesome model especially for an Urban Farm where many people would live close enough to easily take advantage of it!

Has anyone else come across any other unique ideas for selling your produce?
