Year-round variety By: Rose MacGregor (Jan 25, 2013)
Calliope was my first experience with a CSA. Ive been a member about 16 months. I love that there is food year-round and the variety is amazing. There are lots of things I have never eaten before in addition to plenty of staple things like greens, lettuces, cucumber, tomatoes, etc. Lisa always gives me pointers on how to cook things if I'm ever unsure. I have volunteered some time on the farm as well and she is very good at explaining about nutrients and the planting cycle. She really knows her stuff. She does everything by hand, very little equipment is used. Since becoming a member I have a new appreciation for organic local veggies and all the work that goes into farming. I don't think I could ever go back to buying at local grocers- the freshness and taste is unbeatable.
