Best of the Best
By: (Aug 31, 2016)
As a local, Master Wild Game Chef I am exposed to the best this area has to offer. I met the entire staff at Coon Rock Farm over the years and I can personally attest you will be hard pressed to find better. The sustainable practices, the animal welfare, the gracious and humble owners and staff and farm hands all are top shelf! The CSA is the best I have found in the area and I always look forward to my "box of heaven". Peace and Love. Chef Derek St.Romain
Love the meat

I've been buying regularly for two years. Their sausage and bacon are the best. Our daughter will not touch grocery store bacon any longer. I'm now buying other pork and beef products and I'm equally satisfied. Buy Local!
Coon Rock is a win...win...win

That's three win's, right? The first "win" stands for the environment. This local farm is only 6 miles from my house and as I drive to my favorite co-op market for Saturday morning breakfast, I leave very little carbon footprint driving the extra 3 miles to pick up my CSA box. Coon Rock uses nothing harmful and everything sustainable in their farming practices. The second "win" stands for the animals. Although I do not eat meat, I can see that the animals are clean, healthy, and happy. They are humanely raised, as animals should be everywhere. I love picking up my weekly box just because I can visit with the animals. The third "win" stands for ME! I'm eating the healthiest, freshest, and tastiest greens, roots, and produce available. I know where my eggs come from because I've seen the chickens running all over the fields. Can't wait for the 4th "win," which will be my summer CSA box. Every week is a Christmas present, and with the summer CSA, it's like Christmas in July.

I buy often from Coon Rock Farm and have never been disappointed. The flavor of the meat (chicken, pork and beef) is awesome! The vegetables are also excellent. A visit to the farm is really interesting.

My family and I drove up to this farm this past Saturday. I can't really comment on the vegetables, but we purchased eggs, maple sausage, bacon, and ground beef. It's pricey but I went there knowing what to expect. I was really excited to try locally grown, organic food. Well, upon bringing my purchases home, I realized that one of the ingredients in the maple sausage was artificial maple flavor. It was like a complete waste of money to me -- why would you flavor sausage with artificial maple flavor? Why not use maple syrup? I just didn't get why they would take a completely fresh item, then add trash to it. The bacon was PURE fat, there was no BACON on my bacon!! Have you ever seen pure white, fat strips...? I have no idea how they could sell that to people. Tonight I'm going to try the ground beef and pray that it makes up for the rest. However they really need to pay attention to the quality of the products and not sell marked-up garbage just because it's locally grown.

We are required to make sausage in a USDA facility and they are required by the govenment to file a HASSUP plan for each type of item they process. We have requests for maple flavored sausage and the only way we can get it is with maple flavor and not actual maple syrup. It is one of two sausages with an arificial flavor (the other is andouille) and there's nothing we can do to change it that would be legal. As for bacon, some packaes are leaner than others...that's just the way bacon is. Each customer is free to pick out what they want and if the bacon has more fat than desired, can easily select another package (just like at the grocery store). However, what's more annoying is that this customer never addressed any of these concerns with me as we would have gladly refunded their money so obviously they are more interested in complaining online than in truely getting the fresh, local product they claim to want. We work hard to provide the pasture raised, heritage breed meat, eggs and veggies that we do and we make no claims of perfection but we do our best to make every customer satisfied if something goes wrong. But there is little I can do to a customer who complains to the world without first addressing their concerns with us.
Coon Rock Farm is Fantastic!

One of the very few farms in my area that offers a winter CSA. I've just started with this years' and have been nothing but impressed. For example, the arugula is almost as spicy as horseradish but smooth as honey; I've never had arugula with anywhere near this much flavor anywhere else. I'm excited for the rest of the year!
