Reviews for: Shepherd Farms
Great product & CSA
By: Sally Torgeson (Feb 5, 2013)
I have been buying Tom Shepherd's "salad" for years at our local Farmer's markets. This year, I decided to participate in his CSA (and I was able to get it!). I picked up by first box last week and it was wonderful -- I can't wait for the one this week. Not only am I receiving great fresh, organic vegetables & fruits, I am helpiong support the local farms -- so we can continue to receive this beutiful produce.

My husband and I just joined Shepherd Farms CSA because we wanted to access their produce before Farmer's Market where we have been buying it for years. We also believe in supporting local, independent farmers. To drive to their location in Carpinteria is not just a lovely drive but when you arrive at the farm, located in a gorgeous little valley, you feel as though you are in nirvana! Their beautiful plot is laid out so lovely and the darling goats and chickens make the experience even more delightful. But, the produce is so delicious, carrots that taste like none other, lettuce that is full of flavor, and strawberries that are the sweetest imaginable. I could go on and on about flavor, once you have eaten fresh from the field you can never go back!! Eating with the seasons and organically can change your life, sounds hokey but it is true! We miss our acreage and animals and growing space since we retired, but thanks to Shepherd Farms, and other local growers, we certainly eat just as well!!!
