Thanks to our wonderful members!
Being a CSA member with us....
Was getting a box of peak of season, clean, beautiful, healthy vegetables from mid-June - mid-October. We did our best to please everyone. Some vegetables might be what you can get year round at the grocery store (but better because they haven't traveled miles and miles are fresher), some unfamiliar... You won't necessarily get what are planning on.
The vegetables are local and in season.
You are supporting a local farm; us farmers work very hard 80+ hours a week. We jump through many hoops and get few rewards. We were very appreciative of your support and depended on it greatly. The food system in this country is badly broken; small local farms and people who support them are part of the solution.
“One of the things I have found over the years is that you never know what there is going to be an abundance of. The first year it’s easy to think you will get equal amounts of “normal” vegetables each week in a predictable manner. However, that is not the case! If you embrace the unpredictability it can actually make it more fun; if you don’t it can be overwhelming and stressful. What a blessing this year to have an abundance of lettuce and carrots! Other years it’s been tomatoes, squash, etc…Each year we create unique memories of that season. We actually remember what we ate and can reminisce about it! We have a much broader appreciation of food & farming then we did when we started. If everything happened according to ‘plan’, we wouldn’t have all of these great memories.”
