Great Service, Selection and Quality
By: Andrew Travis (Aug 7, 2017)
We found Farmer John at Silver Maples Farm here on Local Harvest as we were looking for a CSA to join. It was important for us to eat local fruits and veggies that were fresh and if possible, organically-grown. We were happy to join the Pay By the Week program at Silver Maples Farm because we have access each week to a rotating selection of fruits and veggies (and flowers too!). This program is better for us than a CSA because we only pay for weeks that there are crops; if we have a late frost and it delays crop pick-ups, we only start paying when we start picking up. While these aren't certified-organic, they are grown without the use of pesticides and Farmer John adheres to organic growing methods. His farm is only 40 minutes from our home and cheaper than going to Blacksburg or Floyd.

Andrew, Thank you so much for your much appreciated comments. The very fact that you travel 40 miles to pick up your PBW share each and every week, says a lot. We will strive for constant improvement, regarding our PBW customer base. In spite of the fact, this has been a tough year with 25 inches of rain over a 6 week period, our new PBW share program has been a real success. Thank you for your support, Farmer John
