Reviews for: Field 51 Produce
By: Christine Campbell (Nov 7, 2013)
I'm a first-time CSA participant and I signed up with Field 51 because it received such good reviews. What a smart choice! The produce is delicious, the meats are so flavorful, and Dave is an absoute gem. Our area is lucky to have such a dedicated and hard-working farmer. Dave always takes the time to talk with you and to answer your questions and he has been known to tediously prepare peppers to be roasted for homemade paprika. I can't say enough nice things about Dave or his farm. I've already signed up for next year.
In addition to the delicious produce, Field 51 offers eggs, milk, chickens, and lamb. This year we also had honey (some of the most delicious honey I've ever had), fresh herbs, pork and beef from other local sources. All of it is organic, natural, free range, and hormone/antibiotic free. If that's not enough, another participant created a CSA cookbook. Fair warning though, once you try some of the greens that you cannot get anywhere else (tatsoi, senposai), you will be hooked!
A Great CSA

It is nice to tour the farm and know exactly where your food is coming from. He delivers within the area of Oldham county and to some locations downtown. Delivery is a great blessing. You will feel better eating locally harvested food. He also has eggs, free range lamb and chicken. Running a CSA is hard work and Dave does a great job.
Clean Fresh Produce

Dave works hard at having natural fresh produce for his clients. He is always available for questions and support. He also has eggs, and free range lamb and chicken. We are blessed to have Field 51 in our area.

This was our first year with Field 51 and we were psyched. The produce is bountiful and fresh. We recommend Dave whole heartedly.

We switched from a different CSA to Field 51 in 2011 and loved it so much we signed up for 2012. The produce is wonderful and the overall experience is very special. We truly felt Farmer Dave wanted us to be knowledgable about the farm, the process and the food. The communication via email was excellent and included many useful recipes. Can't wait for Spring!
amazingly good produce, always friendly service

I was a fine dining chef for 8 years in the 1980s and never got produce of as high quality as I get from Field 51. The variety is amazing, the cleanliness sparkling, etc., it's photo-worthy stuff. Dave runs a well organized operation that's always ready for pickup when customers arrive. He's always friendly and fun to talk to, passionate about what he does, and great at sharing recipes via email. For anyone contemplating a CSA basket next year, I can't recommend Field 51 more strongly.

This was our third (or was is fourth?) year with Field 51 and we feel very fortunate to be a part of it. Dave and Margaret are top notch folks!...and what they grow is a direct reflection of them. The weekly bounty is VERY plentiful and diverse. We always look forward to Thursdays!!!! Thanks Margaret and Dave for all your hard work (and patience...ha!)!
Farmer Dave is our local Hero

We have been with Farmer Dave since his first year and have nothing but praise for him. The quality and variety of his produce is excellent and he simply gets better each year. My kids love going and feeding the chickens and bringing back the weekly harvest. Dave is not only a great farmer but a very good person and the kind of neighbor that makes our community great. Keep up the good work Dave !
