The Real Deal
By: Laura Gonzalez (May 13, 2010)
My farmers are Phil Noble and Gary and Mel Leavitt. I say that with confidence and conviction after being a member of Inland Empire CSA for years. They are committed to the local, organic movement and are doing what they can to make local possible for us in San Diego on a larger scale in the years to come. Their farms are beautiful, thriving places, with great tasting food and a deep commitment to integrity. The boxes burst with freshly picked produce, and those folks who enjoy eating seasonally and being creative with their cooking will be very happy with CSA membership. I was a member of another CSA for several years before finding Phil at the Hillcrest Farmer's Market. The produce was spotty from that other CSA, and I was often disappointed. It is not like that with Inland Empire CSA boxes; the items are always fresh and just picked, and taste great. Having two farms that contribute to the CSA means that there is a wider variety in the box each week. I also get honey and eggs from them, which are wonderful. I'm so proud to tell people that I know my farmers, and that I trust them to feed my children.
