Reviews for: North Star Orchard
By: Kasey Jueds (Sep 12, 2008)
My fiance and I have been North Star Orchard "Fruit Explorers" for two years now, and it has been a thoroughly positive and delicious experience. I look forward to receiving our fruit share each week and have learned to love plums (I wasn't a big fan before) and pears (ditto), plus white peaches (I thought I only liked the yellow ones until I tasted a type called Snow White); my fiance is crazy about the Asian pears. The North Star website is full of helpful information, like recipes and guidelines for storing your fruit. I know I'll be sad late this fall when our share comes to an end, and already look forward to signing up again next year.
wonderful fruits and vegetables

I've been eating North Star Orchard fruit for a number of years, and am now a fruit and vegetable CSA member. I can't say enough great things about the entire process and about the quality of the fruit and vegetables. Additionally, Lisa is very helpful and quickly responds to questions. The produce is always clean, amazingly tasty, and of unusual variety. I wasn't much of a plum fan prior to eating North Star variety plums, but now they are one of my favorite fruits.
Thank you for an all-around wonderful experience.

Love the fruit! By far the tastiest I've ever had and great variety. I'm a member of the Fruit Explorers and the weekly stipend is plenty for 5.

I've been a customer of North Star Orchard for a number of years, both at farmers' markets and through their Fruit Explorers and Vegetable CSAs.
The produce is reliably superb, abundant and yummy.
North Star truly sets a very high bar with excellent communication (including neat stories about the farm), great quality and variety, and superior customer service.
I also serve as host for a CSA drop-off site and consistently hear directly from fellow subscribers how highly they regard the quality and value of both the fruit and veggie CSAs.
Great variety and quality

We have been very happy with both Fruit Explorers and the new veggie CSA. Shares are generous and varied, and all the produce is very clean and of dependable quality. We have learned to eat a lot of new things and do not have to buy produce at the store all summer. One share each of fruits and veggies has been enough for two adults and one to three kids, with some left over for sharing with friends!
