We are converts to CSA and have a CSA baby!
By: Amy Harrison (Nov 13, 2013)
We heard about CSA's through some friends and clients over the years, but never joined one until 2 years ago, and we are SO glad we did! We had quite a few recommendations to Treasured Haven Farm from clients so we decided to join that CSA. Our family was in a transition of getting away from SAD (standard American diet) and eating much healthier.
We have loved every single box we have received...It has been like opening a surprise present every week, wondering what is inside. And every week we are excited to see it full.. and in peak season...overflowing...with beautiful and yummy selection of farm fresh, picked that morning, organic bounty. Yum! I am hungry just thinking about it!
We have ordered the large family box weekly both years, and the every other week large fruit box both years, and this year I added the extended season veggies and a fresh turkey. The value for what we get and the quality is fantastic. There is absolutely NO WAY we could buy this fresh or this quality at our local store. It is the only way we will ever buy produce in the summer and fall again. I just wish our growing season was longer in MN!
I am especially excited about the extended season boxes we are receiving because not only am I able to stock our freezer and root cellar with our bounty but now I am able to have fresh organic homemade baby food for our new addition to our family. You see we were a family of 5 desperatly trying for the last 7 years to add to our home another baby. Nothing we tried helped us get pregnant and we had all given up when I found out 3 months into our 1st year of our CSA we were pregnant! We believe 100% it was because of our healthy organic change of eating! You can not eat healthier or fresher than farm grown organic! Our DR agreed that was what my body needed! I shared our story wih many others and I was surprised to hear about so many other CSA babies out there....Wow, who knew? I wish I would have done this sooner! Anyway, we have a beautiful baby girl who is starting to eat solids next month when she turns 6 months and I will be feeding her squash, potatoes, pears and peaches all homemade all from our CSA boxes that I have frozen for her!
We love Treasured Haven farm! We have and will continue to recommend them to all of our friends, family, clients and my husbands patients in his clinic! Peg and Pete are wonderful along with their boys and truly make you feel part of the family. The boxes are very affordable and as the season grows they get fuller and fuller until overflow! At the end of the season each year we are all invited out to the farm to pick out our pumpkins and decorative gourds and corn stalks and fill our box ourselves with our favorites. Our kids look forward to this and love going. We are always invited all season and we hope to take them out there to help with picking produce next summer! What a great family experiance!
