Fantastic Produce, Gorgeous Farm!

I have frequented Windmill Farm from the beginning and cannot say enough good things about their fruits, vegetables, eggs and beautiful flowers!
As a mother of young children, it is very important that my family eat fresh, healthy food and that I know where it comes from. We have all visited the Farm and my kids have learned the value of hard work and what that produces. My kids have eaten fruit off Windmill Farm trees and tomatoes off the vine. They have also gone with Paula to collect fresh eggs. The lessons of healthy eating and the education in quality produce is priceless and my kids will often say at the grocery store, "don't buy it here, get it fresh!"
Thankfully, Paula and Frank run their convenient Farm Stand, where I can stop quickly and pick something up. The Stand is adorable and there is always a cute display of whatever seasonal produce is available. They will often have newsletters at their stand which allow me to keep up to date with whats happening and what yummy food to expect next.
I love to stop by and peak at what work they have been doing on the property and with their beautiful Craftsman house. I especially love seeing those gorgeous German Shepherds!!
On occasion, I have contacted Paula with special orders of eggs or peaches, etc. and she has been so accomodating, meeting me or even delivering to my house! Always with something extra, like a bouquet of fresh basil!
I highly recommend Windmill Farm and tell everyone I know all about it! Stop by the stand or go visit them at the Gridley Farmers Market, you won't be sorry!
