what's not to love?
By: carribeth bliem (Jan 16, 2014)
My family has been a member of Elise's CSA for over ten years. What drew us to Elise initially is something that continues to this day: the variety in her offerings. Not just lettuce in the spring but several different types of lettuce, each one more beautiful than the last. Honestly, the produce is so beautiful that I like to leave it out on the kitchen counter to enjoy before I prepare it (of course, after the beautiful broccolli bolted in the warmth of the kitchen, I had to revise that plan!) And it's organic! And it's local! And it's tended by Elise and her team of interns and fellow farmers. The personalization of the weekly boxes is another benefit: my family LOVES fried green (immature) omatoes. While Elise prefers to harvest her tomatoes (another fruit that is offered in many different heirloom varieties), when I asked about green tomatoes, she provided me some the next week, and now she remembers, every year, to include some over the summer months. We love our CSA!
