LOVE my CSA share, love the market!
By: Jennifer Land (Oct 18, 2010)
I have been a part of Stephen's CSA for the 2010 season (which will be about 40+ weeks of produce!) and I have been so pleased with the offerings!
We have received extremely generous portions of the most delicious locally grown food. During the winter and spring, we received huge helpings of crisp greens, the summer yielded juicy melons, awesome winter and summer squash, and tons of okra, tomatoes, black eyed peas, peppers and more... I am loving all of the fall goodies right now (especially the sweet potatoes!
Every week has been like opening a goody box and our family has benefited greatly from this modest investment. Not only have I gotten WELL more than my money's worth, but my kids have been able to come out to the farm weekly to feed the chickens, run around in the sunflowers, harvest vegetables with me, and just get a general understanding of WHERE their food comes from. It is so refreshing and we've had a total blast! Stephen is easy going and answers any questions you may have (even if they seem dumb! haha!). I can't wait to sign up for the 2011 CSA. I'm so glad he's expanding it so that more families can get in on the CSA... it will allow him to diversify the crops some, I think, and it'll continue to be an inexpensive way for my family to get the best produce out there! We're really excited about the possible addition of some more fruit this year... yum!
If you are on the fence about joining the CSA, I encourage you to ask questions and GO FOR IT! :) We have truly, truly enjoyed it. I've never been a bit disappointed! The share has always exceeded our expectations and there's always a surprise or two! :)
