My family has subscribed for 3 years, going on our fourth now. Thanks to this CSA, we have become big fans of veggies we never even knew we liked, and the farmers -- two warm, friendly and intelligent women -- send an e-newsletter with the delivery every week, telling you what is happening in their garden and what is in the produce bag, as well as providing great recipes and suggestions. We freeze some extra veggies every growing season to enjoy during winter, so the MANY months we get bags from this CSA during the growing season feel almost year-round. We most definitely get more than our money's worth.
We belonged to another CSA in the past and quit because the quality and care were disappointing, but Wildfire Farm exceeds excellence. Everything is consistently clean and beautiful, and there's pleasant surprises over the season that show they're going the extra mile to please their subscribers (shitaki mushrooms, strawberries, garlic braids, and other treats when the crops and weather cooperate).
A couple years back when I was thinking about subscribing to their weekly flower bouquet, but concerned about using resources for something that seemed just decorative, I inquired a bit more into their farming practices. Boy, I became more impressed than ever! I learned that Wildfire Farm irrigates from a creek on their farm, picks pests off the veggies by hand rather than spray even organic pesticides, and does many other things that show they are the eco-friendly and organic "real deal." Our family took Marci and Dane up on the offer to come see their farm, and it is positively inspiring. Everything at Wildfire Farm -- from the veggies to the flowers -- is grown with the upmost care and respect for the earth. You can even enjoy fresh cut flowers every week and feel good about your environmental impact.
My family just cannot say enough good things about our several years of experience as Wildfire Farm subscribers! We've enjoyed abundant, wonderful, tasty food that's expanded our diets, grown by the nicest two famers you could ever meet who practice everything CSAs are supposed to be about. We feel very fortunate and, to pass it on a bit, have even given a few gift bags to others here and there for wedding presents, etc. Highly recommend!
