Love our CSA
By: diane harvey (Dec 6, 2009)
We've been taking part in Garden of Eden Organic's bounty for about 16 months now and have signed up for an annual subscription and just joined the meat CSA. The quality, variety and ease of pick-up (Irvine Farmers Market) is just great! We're a foodie family, but this has forced even us to try new things and research recipes. My husband and I have recently read Omnivores Dilemma and that only made us feel better about supporting the small family farmers!

I am very happy to have found a place to get food that has been produced without pesticides. It is only recently that I have become aware of what is going on in the food industry . This is due to my grown daughter's rapidly failing health, and after a year , finally linking it back to eating gmo foods laden with pesticides. After only five months of eating good wholesome organic food she is rapidly regaining her health. The difference is amazing. A big thank you to all the farmers that are raising wholesome food that we can feed our families and truly feel good about and enjoy..
awesome food, great service

We started out in October and figured we would try one month of service and loved it so much we resigned for 3 months. When the 3 months ran out we renewed for a year. That's how much we love the food. I know we are just that much healthier. I had been on an exercise kick for several months swimming 3-4 times a week and felt great and lost some weight. The weight loss accelerated after getting on the organic food. I know all the good fruit and veggies are supplanting something else of dubious nutritional value. So the benefit is two fold by 1) getting rid of somewhat toxic food and 2) eating delicious and nutritious food.
The service is wonderful too, the staff are always smiling and greeting us enthusiastically. I look forward each week to picking up the food and seeing what we get.
Great produce, great family feeling!

We have been getting boxes for about 2 months now, and I couldn't be happier! A small box is just right two adults, a seven year old (who loves veggies) and a two year old. The produce is amazing, so fresh and pretty and SOOOO tasty! I had no idea cucumbers were this good! I love that we get veggies we couldn't/wouldnt buy at the store because I find ways to make them and I've found some new favorites! (You, kale!) Jen and Paul are so laid back and friendly and always have a great recipe and a helping hand. We look forward to supporting our community for a long time!
box of love

I can't say enough about the product and service our family gets from Jennifer and Garden of Eden Organics. I started using them because I felt I was in a rut with what I was buying at the store each week. Little did I know how much this CSA would change the way we not only ate, but thought about food. I love knowing our food was grown and picked by local people. When I get my box each week, I feel like I am being handed over a box of love. SO much time and energy goes into all the organic food, you can taste the difference. It makes me feel good to know I am able to provide the highest quality food for my family and myself. What a gift. Jennifer, who runs the CSA is always there with a smile and a recipe for those veggies I am unsure about (kale, swiss chard) and her enthusiasum for the food really comes through. It has become a weekly routine I dont see giving up for quite sometime. Don't know how we lived without it!

My husband and I have been doing this for about two months now and we are extremely pleased. The produce is fresh and tastes so much BETTER. The strawberries and avocados are the best I've ever tasted. I also like that I get produce I wouldn't normally buy (such as swiss chard) because it forces me to branch out. I will never go back to buying my produce from the large grocery store chains.
