Tasty, fresh food!
By: Priscilla E (Jul 3, 2014)
We've been participants in Allan and Maura Balliett's Fresh and Local CSA for almost 10 years. We stay with them because the food tastes great and because we know it is good food. Allan and Maura are picky, picky, picky when it comes to their farm. It is a biodynamic farm - if that isn't a familiar term, just understand that they don't use chemicals and avoid all GMO - we know, because we've spent enough time at the farm to understand what they do and how hard they work.
We love the lettuces, beans, garlic, potatoes, squash, tomatoes, turnips, onions.... We also get eggs from them. In fact, we've stopped eating eggs (even the eggs that say organic at our local stores) from anyone else, so it is a BIG DEAL when Maura starts delivering eggs. Our friends love coming over for brunch - as long as we have eggs!
On top of all of this, we've learned a lot about food and farming from Allan and Maura (enough to know that it is hard work to raise tasty, nutritious food).
