Reviews for: Our Family Farm
Thanks for accommodating the carless in Ann Arbor

Shopping around for CSA shares, Our Family Farm seems like the best deal by far cost wise for the variety of produce. It is also one of the few that delivers to the Ann Arbor Farmers Market, which is great for someone who doesn't have a car and lives only a mile or so from Kerrytown. Thanks for accommodating! I can't wait for the vegetables and honey and my boyfriend can't wait for the eggs

The Family Farm folks are very nice. The eggs are terrific. I have never been in a share program before, but I found it interesting. There were things offered that I don't usually eat, and I liked them, so that was good.
However, I didn't realize things like potatoes could be so small. The potatoes looked like seed potatoes to me. There were lots, too. Maybe it was a bad growing year? I also never got any honey, or cooking pumpkins, and I think I only got flowers once. There was no fruit. Each person does pick their own stuff out of the boxes, but sometimes you feel like maybe the best stuff was picked out already, and it would be more fair if it was distributed evenly.
Oh, well, I would try it again, just to find new things to eat...like spaghetti squash! Who knew?!

We feel sorry you feel this way . Unfortunately when one decides to join a CSA, they need to show up and get their food. When one does NOT show up week after week then how can you expect to get what you are not there to receive? Missing pick up days is one thing all CSA have a hard time dealing with.
Best Bird in the Flock!

Just wanted to follow up regarding the turkey I purchased from Our Family Farm for Thanksgiving of 2007. Turkey was delivered as promised, was large and delightful! After some brining and careful roasting, this was the best turkey I have ever prepared. I had approximately a 15lb bird and it did not last long enough for leftovers! The meat was incredibly flavorful and moist. In years past, because where we lived, I had to rely on Fed Ex to deliver a fresh bird often times at expense of over $200. The bird delivered by Farmer John was better quality, and about 1/8 of the price I normally paid. Thanks for allowing to enjoy such great meat, we look forward to future years!
