Great CSA farm with produce, eggs, & meat options
By: Thomas Helmholdt (Nov 8, 2012)
My wife and I wanted to find a local farm where we could get organic produce after having purchased organic beef from a local farm. We believe that local grown produce, eggs and meat taste better and is healthier for our family. As a result of our search, we found Antaya Acres Heritage Farm and have received an abundance of CSA produce and eggs over the years with plenty to share with family and friends. My personal favorites are the large variety of melons, tomatoes, squash, and hot peppers available from the farm. We have now signed up to be part of the 2012 pork CSA for winter (after having sampled some of the spicy delicious sausage available from the farm). We have been a CSA customer with Antaya Acres Heritage Farm for over 3 years, so we have been there through the good years and the bad years. There are never any guarantees when it comes to farming. The true test of a CSA farmer's character comes when times are difficult. We were very impressed when Stephanie Antaya offered all of her customers the option to move their contracts from 2011 to the 2012 growing season due to weather related difficulties at the farm. They did not have to do that. According to the CSA contract, it is a shared risk and they could have left it at that. But these are decent, honest, hardworking farmers who always try to do the right thing with respect to their customers. We know this decision made it a very difficult time period at the farm over the past year, but we personally want them to know that we appreciates all of their hard work and dedication to grow and raise healthy food to feed our family. We have already signed up for the 2013 growing season, because we know this is a farm where we can get excellent organically grown produce, eggs, and meat. We look forward to another year with Antaya Acres Heritage Farm, a CSA farm that has earned our trust and respect.
