a local TREASURE!
By: Pamela Kind (Feb 23, 2012)
This is my third year with Tierra's CSA program and I still get excited every time I pick up my box. I LOVE this farm and its wonderful hardworking owners...Evie, Lee and Wayne are the best! They coax an amazing variety of food out of 17 well-farmed acres. A huge assortment of heirloom dried beans, chilis hot and mild, sweet peppers of every kind, the best carrots on the planet, asparagus, artichokes, lettuce, onions, garlic, leeks, scallions, beets, rutabagas, summer & winter squash, kale, chicory, arugula, chard, Asian greens, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, red & green cabbage, cauliflower, eggplant, tomatoes, celery, parsnips, radishes, herbs, flowers, corn, potatoes, amazing strawberries, rhubarb to die for....and on and on and on. Not to mention all the hard to find unusual things. Cardoons, salsify, or puntarelle anyone? They also offer fresh laid eggs, wool & yarn from their Shetland sheep, dried chilis, smoked chilis, and chili jam. I'm sure I'm leaving a few things out, but the point is they offer a HUGE variety of local, seasonal produce all grown sustainably without the use of pesticides.
The (mostly) weekly CSA program is a bargain at $22 but if you can't commit to that, everything is also available for sale right there at the farmstand on Airport Blvd. Unless I inherit some farmland of my own I'll be a T.V. customer for life. I love them and can't recommend them enough!
