"There are CSAs for almost everything edible these days. Is North Spore really the first winter mushroom CSA in Maine? “As far as I know,” Thanhauser said. “I would almost guarantee that.” In the summer, the trio hopes to add a foraged mushroom CSA, but for now, from January to March participants who pay for a full share ($250) get a pound of cultivated mushrooms every week and a mushroom cookbook. Half-shares get you a half-pound for $150 and a cookbook. (Late starts are OK, too.) They’ve already got about 15 people signed up, including well known bookstore owner Don Lindgren of Rabelais Books in Biddeford. In turn, Lindgren supplied North Spore with a small library of mushroom-related cookery books. These come in handy when Thanhauser is sampling his own wares."
