Local, fresh food
By: Rebecca Durbin (Sep 28, 2009)
This is our second year at Buckhill Farms, and we (my husband and I and our two young girls) have enjoyed it immensely. I've learned what is in season when, and have tasted delicious varieties of tomatoes that I've never heard of before. We've also added such vegetables as cabbage and turnips to our diet - increasing the variety of healthy food we eat and helping our girls learn how to eat well as they grow. I love knowing that my food is grown five miles from my house, and I'm eating in-season, organic, fresher-than-fresh produce grown by someone I now know. And it's truly delicious! The peas and potatoes are like nothing I'd ever tasted before.
One other thing I especially like about being a part of Buckhill Farms is that Farmer Andrew always keeps a bin out for compost behind the distribution room. I've started using a separate trash can for our fruit and veggie scraps, so our weekly garbage pick-up at home is only about half of what it used to be. Not only am I keeping all of that stuff out of the landfill, I'm giving it new life, making good soil to grow food that I'll someday share in. It's wonderful all around.
