Reviews for: Henry's Farm
Junior Citizen Discount is amazing!
By: Nadia Gronkowski (Jun 30, 2019)
My fianc? and I joined Henry's junior citizen CSA (20% off the price of a CSA for this who are in their 20s and/or have a kiddo 29 months or younger) and we LOVE it! The cost (with the discount) comes out to about $13 per week, and the quality and quantity cannot be beat. Not to mention Henry and his team are incredibly nice and helpful-- and appreciative of their CSA members. Doing this CSA has changed how we shop, how much money we spend, and how we eat and cook-- all for the better. We highly recommend it!
Love this CSA!

We have participated in Henry's CSA for several years and we love it! We love the variety of produce throughout the season and the emails we receive prior to pick up with info about the veggies and suggested recipes. We also appreciate knowing we are supporting a food system that is good for the environment and our health.

Nothing compares to the fresh eclectic variety of Henry's vegetables! The diversity and quality of his produce reflects the care and knowledge he has in producing the BEST fresh produce you can buy in Illinois!
His prices are reasonable, especially for the quality!
Henry Brockman is a gem! Do NOT miss him! You will never go anywhere else!
After a winter of being exiled to Whole Foods
By: Marjorie Soule (May 27, 2008)
After a winter of being exiled to Whole Foods paying top dollar for what appears to be healthy, organic produce, IT"S TIME AGAIN FOR HENRY'S REAL FOOD! It's a relief and joy just to be around it again. The love and skill that goes into the way he treats the earth and its critters, selects and plants an amazing variety of seeds, tends day and night 7 days a week (literally in times of drought), harvests and boxes with great care, sets the bounty out with the eye of the artist - ALL OF THIS CAN BE FELT IN THE ENERGY OF EACH VEGETABLE. It really is amazing to FEEL these things. To have an experience of how love can take the form of a head of lettuce that can become a salad for friends and family - that it's actually possible to serve love and be nourished by it. Thanks to Henry and all the people who help. I know this sounds kind of flowery, but it's really vegetably true. You can see for yourself every Sat at the Evanston Farmer's Market.
Consistently the best produce in the Chicago area

There are more varieties of vegetables and fruits here than any other organic farm in the Chicago area! I have visited the Chicago Green City Market, but shop weekly at the Evanston Farmer's Market because of Henry's Farm, which offers the freshest and most unusual produce in this area. Here you can find not only the sweetest corn, but also the greatest variety of Asian vegetables. Regularly you can find two different types of shiso leaves. There is the largest selection of Asian vegetables here, with atleast 8 different types of choi and several different kinds of Napa cabbage.
