Amazing vegetable selection
By: Natalie Witt (Oct 17, 2012)
My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed the CSA from Harmony Valley Farm for the 2012 season. It was our first experience with a CSA, and we couldn't have asked for a better one.
We chose the flex plan so that we could choose which weeks we wanted delivery based on our busy summer schedule. The flex plan is a great option for those that need to have the opportunity to adjust the delivery schedule. While most of the vegetables are familiar, there are usually one or two items in the box that expand our horizons. We've had the opportunity to try new leafy greens like swiss chard and bok choy, root vegetables like beets and turnips, and also the more common veggies such as sweet corn, tomatoes, potatoes, garlic, peppers, squash, etc.
The newsletters and online recipe search tool on the Harmony Valley website have been immensely helpful in giving us ideas each week on what to cook, storage tips, history and background of specific veggies, and how the farm is doing.
We particularly enjoyed the farm tour this fall where we got to see the fields, pick our own veggies, and learn about the process of planting and harvesting organic. All in all, we've had an amazing experience and so much fun eating local organic produce.
