Happy new member

We just signed up and received our first batch of goodies a few days ago. Among the offerings was a fat, dressed chicken. If he or she's the one I heard clucking next door to where I work, I now know what happy chickens taste like. It was wonderful! The eggs, veggies (some of the sweetest carrots I've ever tasted), and oranges are awesome. I never heard of CSA before, but what a great concept. I love that I can support a local farm and reap the benefits of their hard work and devotion. Keep up the great work, Tom and Holly!
Such a Fun CSA

CSA's like this are the future; local family creating great produce and meats. This is their first year and so far I am very impressed. The chickens delivered were huge, juicy, well cleaned and vacuum sealed. All the citrus and veggies have been perfectly picked. They have also been adding small amounts of herbs, just perfect for including in recipes for the chicken. I highly recommend their products.
Very Happy Customer

The more I learned about this farm and their CSA program the more excited I was to sign-up. The food is naturally grown, when I signed up they were working on becoming certified. It's equivalent to an organic certification. Also, a lot of the animals they raise are heritage breeds. This is something that's very important to me, these breeds are both a part of our Heritage and an important part of sustainable farming. And the best part, It's all brought to you by a local family at a very reasonable price. I definitely made the right choices signing up for this start-up CSA.
So far we've received 2 boxes and the food has been great. We received the sample box in the fall containing apples, persimmons, walnuts, eggs, beef and chicken. And the first box for the year arrived just the other day with carrots, oranges, honey, walnuts, rice, fresh herbs, eggs and 2 chickens. Not bad for a winter box. I must say the quality is great on everything so far. The eggs are very fresh and have a great flavor. The chickens are good sized and delicious.
I believe the Chicken can be ordered separately from the CSA along with their Beef (when available) if you don't want to commit to a CSA or if you just want to give their meat a try. You wont be disappointed.

A few days before Thanksgiving I received a farm fresh grown chicken,fresh apples,and freshly pressed apple juice for my children from Hall farms.(Holly and Tom Hall). I was delighted when I noticed how HUGE the breast were on the chicken. I decided that I would use this chicken for my Thanksgiving dinner since it could easily feed a family of five or six plus. We all felt happy knowing that the chicken, apples and apple juice had zero pesticides or hormones added.The chicken was tender and juicy. Also, very lean. This was good food, the way nature truly intended.
