Reviews for: Basket of Life Farm
A fun farm
By: Kelly Patrick (Jan 9, 2013)
Not only do you get to feed the chickens, but Heather also has small classes/workshops on occasion. The canning workshop was a lot of fun and helped me to get over the initial hesitation of doing this on my own. In addition, the weekly newsletters have had some killer recipes to go along with the veggies that are available each week!! Sometimes you just don't know what to do with all of your eggplants, zucchini or fall squash- these recipes have been great. Seeing Heather and Eric at the Farmer's Market is always fun, as well!
Local Fresh Produce
By: Judith Held (Jan 8, 2013)
Being in the middle of winter and longing for Spring, my husband, my grandchildren and I are looking forward to taking our Sunday trip to the "farm" and pick up our fresh produce. We have been members of Basket of Life Farm the last few years and appreciate the fresh produce and all the work that Heather and Eric put into the farm and making this a great experience for us as a family. Thinking of joining? I highly recommend it. Buy local and fresh.
Delightful Honey Caramels

Eric & Heather's honey caramels are something you just have to try....so intense and silky. The varieties of produce they grow offer a nice change of pace to the basics.
Padron Hot Peppers and Amazing Honey
By: Tina Ughrin (Apr 23, 2008)
Our family joined the Basket of Life CSA last year. We received wonderful bags full of cabbage, beets, summer and winter squash, several varieties of tomatoes, and much, much more every week. We love chatting with Heather and Eric and their property is beautifully nestled in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. I must rave though especially for their padron hot peppers and honey. I had never had these wonderful little peppers before and fell in love. Heather provides great recipes each week in the newsletter of suggested dishes for that week's bounty so I was never at a loss to use up all of the new and exciting varieties of vegetables. Finally, their honey. It is the best tasting honey I have ever had. We live near Krieger's where several local bee keepers sell their honey. However, the Walters honey is just the right sweetness and full bodied flavor. Heather used it to make wonderfully creamy and smooth caramels which she sold at the Penninsula Farmers Market and by order. We savored our box eating just one each evening as a treat.
