Windflower Farm growing fantastic produce in Central Oregon!
By: Katy Bryce (Mar 3, 2010)
It took me a while to believe that a Bend (Alfalfa) based farm would deliver quality produce for a CSA membership. Having lived here for 13 years, I have heard over and over... "you can't grow tomatoes in Central Oregon". Well, you can. And farmer Gigi Meyer is showing me that we can have a locally based small farm industry.
I was a member of Windflower Farm's CSA last year and each week I was so pleased with the bag of food that I received. I love that this farm is a mere 20 minutes from Bend. I know that my food was harvested just hours before I get it.
Bok choy, broccoli rabe, squash, tomatoes, strawberries, kale, carrots, beets, onions, turnips, basil, spinach, lettuce, zucchini, green beans, corn, fennel, leeks, cherry tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, scallions, chives, rosemary, oregano, peas, potatoes, and much, much more. I'm pretty sure I got strawberries every week from June on.
Thanks to Windflower Farm! I've signed up for 2010!
