I participated in the 2011-2012 Winter CSA and had a great experience! There obviously wasn't as much variety as in the summer, but we got salad greens, potatoes, cabbage, onions to name a few!... [more]

Cathy and Mark are wonderful! They provide great food and their knowledge is outstanding! I have enjoyed getting to know them this this year with their winter CSA.... [more]

We loved being part of the Carousel Watergardens Farm CSA for the first time this year! It was such an easy and tasty way to get great food this winter! Many of our friends were interested in this progra and we had nothing but great things to say about it. Thank you Mark and Cathy :)
