I participated in the 2012 summer CSA at Fair Weather Acres. I purchased a 1/2 share. While the people were friendly and we received a lot of produce, the quality was often lacking. We received beets and turnips that went bad within a week of getting them. Some of the green leafy veggies were already beginning to decompose by the time we received our box. It was an interesting experience and I will be seeking out a CSA again in 2013 but it will not be with Fair Weather Acres.

We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the CSA share. We keep an open line of communication and wish that you had let us know if you had a problem with the quality. We pride ourselves On the freshness and quality of our produce. We pick our produce for packing either the night before or the day of the pickup and pack it that day. Our feedack all summer was positive and we had not heard of any other issues. The few people that had a tomato that may have cracked in transport informed us and the produce was replaced immediately. Farming and CSA's are not infallible and we can only improve our service to the customers if we are kept informed.

After this review was written, I was so upset I wanted to call you and talk a little about your experience. Upon further investigation, we have not been able to find you listed as a member last year. We searched all our files, CSA customer lists and billing information and your name does not exist even as a "shared" share. This is very interesting to me as your review was already so contrary to all the others. If you would like to speak further on this strange matter, please contact the farm directly and refrain from posting on Local Harvest.
