What a great experience!
By: Mark Woodworth Jeanne Dussault (Oct 29, 2011)
We tried a CSA for the first time this year, based on the recommendation of friends who were already repeat customers of Orchard Country Produce. We chose the full 21 weeks, and a half share for the two of us. It was all we could do to eat it up. It has been a truly enjoyable and educational experience. And dealing with Gregg Keckler and family has been wonderful.
We've had the chance to try vegetables and fruit we had heard of but never tasted, such as collard greens and kohlrabi, and enjoyed old favorites like Bartlett and Bosc pears and eggplant. It's really neat to take something out of the cooler and say, "Now, what do you suppose this is exactly?" Both the variety and the quality of the produce has been outstanding. The sweet corn finally ended--well after the last of the corn elsewhere--and it was just as sweet and tender as the first corn of the year. Northern Spy and Ginger Gold apples, wow. Farm-fresh sweet potatoes....mmmmmm. And the apple cider is really the best we've had in years.
The 21 weeks have raced by. Today was the final week, and we look forward to more great eating in 2012. Thanks again, Gregg!
