Another great season with Honeybrook
By: virginia lamb falconer (Nov 10, 2011)
We have been members of Honey Brook's boxed share program for the past 7 years (hosts for the past 6) and have been very satisfied with the quantity and variety of produce received. In fact we split a share with another family and still have a good quantity of great vegetables. Our host site has grown each year, from 23 member families at the start to 46 this year. Each year members are surveyed as to their likes and dislikes and adjustments are made. For us this has resulted in more produce that our entire family likes, in addition to the less traditional stuff like kohlrabi, fennel and celeriac (always fun to find new ways to make new vegetables). This fall we have had an avalanche of the most beautiful and flavorful greens--leaf lettuce, mesclun mix, arugula (love that arugula), as well as carrots, beets and SWEET POTATOES (yum). Although we live an hour away we try to visit the farm at least once a season. My kids (now 9 and 11) love it there, it's just a farm, no "agritourism" or gimmicks--kind of refreshing in our culture of constant overstimulation. The kids happily run through the fields for hours, picking vegetables, flowers and herbs, and are proud to know where their produce comes from. I love Honey Brook and recommend it without reservation. It is a New Jersey treasure.
