Joined this share in 2013 as a way to eat healthier and educate my kids about where food comes from -real food!. Stephanie and Brett are fantastic people and the weekly pick up was always so exciting. The kids loved seeing new foods they hadn't tried before as well as tasting fresh organic versions of veggies they already love. My son who avoided lettuce at all costs was asking for second helpings of grilled kale and going with me to market to make sure i picked the greens he liked. Freezing some greens was required as we couldn't use all that we received in one week- we had delicious beet greens with Christmas dinner and still have more to use. The recipes were very helpful for ingredients I wasn't used to cooking. EVERY recipe was voted on after meals and all but 3 made it in to the KEEP folder. I can't wait for next season.

I have been a member for two years, and am about to sign up for a third. The produce is amazing- my basket is always overflowing- and the newsletter is a wonderful connection to the farm. It is wonderful to see the family every week at market, and they always take the time to get to know, and to talk with every member. Food is fresh and varied. I share a full share with two friends and there is enough to go around. There are the market standards, with enough variety (with recipes to help us along on the newsletter!) to keep the shares from getting boring. Everything gets used, everything is useful. Organic, delicious, and a friendly and involved farm family. I will not be looking to another farm for as long as this one is active.

This was our first year with Skoloff Valley Farms CSA and we loved it! It was so convenient to pick up our veggies here in the Clarks Summit. Brett and Stephanie seem to really care about making sure that they use safe farming practices- I love that all of their produce is organic!
