Jade Family Farm is our second CSA experience. We have a very large garden and the" A la Carte CSA" has been an excellent fit. We place an order 2 days before market and then just pick up. We don't have to worry about getting to the market early enough to get the good stuff. It is all safe in our box :)
The organic vegetables are consistently excellent. John keeps in touch by writing weekly newsletters that make make us feel closer to the farm. We have most enjoyed their wide variety of greens that have been produced almost all season long.
Last year was my first experience with CSA and organic foods. The experience with Jade Farm was great. There is a application fee and the rest of the money was due in 2 payments. Before the first delivery I received a list of the types of vegetables that are grown to decide if I want to avoid some or increase the amounts of another vegetable. I have no great likes or dislikes so I got the regular delivery. Each delivery includes at least one herb and a variety of vegetables for a family of 4 for one week. A one sheet newsletter contains at least one recipe for items in the weekly box. The weekly deliveries were prompt with several sites available in the Harrisburg area where I live. The heirloom tomatoes were a favorite of mine. I would recommend the Jade Farm.
