We are entering our 2nd year with The Farm Stuff and we love them. We have 3 children and 1 on the way and they all love going to the farm. It has taught them so many lessons: supporting local farmers, eating healthy, trying different things, eating seasonally.
We opted to pick-up last year, rather than take advantage of their generous "free drop-off" offer. It really seemed to be the best way to get the most out of the experience and your money. They would allow us to occasionally swap an item...or take more or less of an item. They are very flexible, but we are too, we are open to trying new things.
Mandy loves to chat and offer advice on cooking or tell you how the crop is doing. There is really a great connection to what you are feeding your family. She also gave our kids (and us) a great tour of their beautiful little farm...and my kids just love visiting their animals.
I researched a lot of farm and this one seemed to be the best for many reasons...
An incredible mix of crop (unbelievable how much they grow)
They swap with another local farmer so you get some items that they don't grow as well.
Lower than average price
Eggs every week
Organic (not certified, but we understand why...very costly)
Very friendly family
Flexible with their crop (swap items etc.)
Extra weeks if you are willing to pick-up...if they have crop ready before or after the start/end date they are willing to share.
20% off of their organic meats
So many other, I just can't list them all!
