<3 Capella Farm!
By: Ania Owczarczyk (May 29, 2013)
I began my relationship with the farm Summer 2012 when I decided to try a CSA; I split with a friend of mine who had previously participated in Capella's summer share.
The variety and quantity of vegetables I received every other week was joyfully overwhelming. I found myself eating healthier all summer long, and experimenting more frequently in the kitchen. I was glad to have a chest freezer, as the quantity was so fruitful that freezing was necessary (I welcomed these frozen greens in the winter). When I still had too much to eat myself, my co-workers and friends were pleasantly surprised with raw and baked goodies.
My experience Summer 2012 was so positive that I convinced my friend to split a Fall share. This past Jan. Capella started a Heart of the Winter share, and I jumped on that as well (as it was an every other week pick up to begin with, I did not split this share). I only "took a break" from the Spring share because I was traveling too much and wanted to clear my freezer of summer veggies.
Regardless of the weather, the drive to and from the farm is extremely relaxing. I get excited like a child for Christmas Day as I approach the farm...what delicious vegetables will I take home today?
Lastly, Jennifer, her family, and everyone else you encounter working on the farm are extremely kind, thoughtful people. If you are not sure how to use a particular vegetable, visit the farm's site for recipes or ask Jennifer during pick up. Jennifer is extremely receptive to emails and phone calls, too.
You will not regret participating in a CSA, especially with Capella Farm.
