I had a membership in this CSA in 2006 and I loved the amazing tasty produce every week. I really never needed to go to the store except for eggs and milk. My only regret is that I had to move from the area, and it's just too far to travel every week. I loved getting heirloom tomatoes and perfectly ripe but not mushy peaches, and sweet young corn. I learned a lot of ways to cook kale, and I finally learned to really enjoy a simple salad with the always different bunch of lettuce in my pickup. If you sign up early enough, you get "farm dollars" that let you pick out an extra item or two, like an extra pint of blueberries- awesome reward.
One of the only farms I have seen which offer a half share, which is perfect for my 2 person family, I hate to let food go to waste because I can only buy huge shares from the other farms.
I loved meeting and chatting with Genevieve, and the great recipes in the newsletter. Even though I can't make it down to the stand very often, I still make a lot of the recipes! Next year, have a drop-off site in Lowell, please!!
