Beautiful produce, dedicated farmer!
By: Beth Hartwig    (Mar 29, 2013)

We joined the Holloman Produce Farm's CSA last year for the first time. I couldn't have been happier - the produce was gorgeous and the farmer's passion for food, cooking, and organic farming is contagious.

Every two weeks I'd come away from Ric Holloman's garage with a big box of vegetables; all kinds of greens and onions and garlic, tomatoes, squash, beans, radishes, and herbs galore. The rainbow chard was so pretty, I photographed it! Each pickup comes with a sheet explaining how to store and prepare each item in the box, as well as some recipes and a preview for the next box.

Support local farmers, and if you're in the Northwest Chicago Suburbs, support Holloman Produce Farm!

Eat your vegetables!
By: Marianne Arrigo    (Mar 17, 2013)

What a great & convenient way to get fresh vegetables and herbs for your family. Each box provided us with a variety of produce. Participating in Holloman's CSA enabled us to get the veggies we already know & love along with trying new produce items and finding new favorites. Especially nice for the cooking novice, Ric provided a newsletter with information, tips and suggestions and recipes so I could explore my inner chef!

Very Nice
By: brian sherwin    (Mar 16, 2013)

We joined last year and even with the drought always received a large box of different produce each time. The quality is very good and I would recommend it to anyone looking for local produce. If you live in the NW suburbs it is a very convenient way to get home-grown high quality fruit and veggies.

CSA with Hoffman Estates pickup!
By: Jim Tykal    (Mar 15, 2013)

We joined the Holloman Farm CSA last year (our first time) and could not have been more pleased with the variety, quality, and value of the produce we received! Despite a very challenging growing season with VERY little rain, Ric still provided us with a great selection of produce every two weeks. Every delivery included a great selection of lettuces and greens, along with a variety of fresh herbs, garlic, onions, etc. Depending on the season, we also enjoyed beans, tomatoes, watermelon, radishes, beets, sweet potatoes, squash, rhubarb, etc. -- as well as a few vegetables that we never tried before (like fennel, which is great sauteed with a little olive oil and garlic)!

A real bonus for us is that he has a pickup location in Hoffman Estates - very convenient if you are in the Chicago NW Suburbs like me!
