Reviews for: Clearwater Acres
By: Reilly Kiernan (Nov 8, 2009)
I recently became aware of what a CSA could (and should!) be. Clearwater Acres has been truly a life changer to me -- I am now more in touch with where my food comes from (thanks to hands on at the farm). I've felt a part of my food, and am proud of what I eat. Farmer Jo encouraged me to even start a small garden of my own and she has been an invaluable source of information for me. Not only with the garden, but how to eat (and live!) sustainably. She encourages a "Sally Fallon-esque" way of eating, which happens to be amazingly delicious as well as nutrient packed. I have two kids who adore coming to the farm - Jo encourages family participation. I am also a member of the chicken CSA, and hear that beef and pork is on the way. She's also branching out into cow shares, which will be whole milk from non A1 cows. I'm really looking forward to it. Clearwater Acres is a small farm, so there aren't many of us members, but if you're lucky enough to get in, you'll be proud of what you've done.
