Reviews for: Vollmecke Orchards & CSA
By: Joy wawrzyniak (Apr 10, 2020)
We have been members of Vollmecke CSA for more than 10 years and have learned so much from Farmer Karen. The beauty and details of seasonal eating has been part of that, but also the benefits of having a farm in our community and food that we can trust. I hope to support this farm for another decade to come
Great Food, Great Community

We have been members of Vollmecke Orchard's CSA for over a decade. The fruits and veggies have always been great. Karen and her crew really take the time and care to produce a delicious basket each week. They have also created a community that draws you in, and makes you feel welcome and invested in the success of the farm. One year we chose to pick up our share off-farm, and regretted it all season. Love that weekly trip to the farm.

This is our third year participating in Vollmecke's CSA and we absolutely love it! After living in upstate New York for 10+ years where CSA's are the norm, we were thrilled to find this local gem. As an avid cook, I'm delighted with the quality of fresh, sustainable fruits and vegetables we receive in our share. Whatever doesn't make it into our weekly meals gets frozen, canned, pickled or preserved. I have really enjoyed getting back to seasonal eating and appreciate the wealth of creative recipes shared by the staff and fellow CSA members. Plus, it has been a fun, educational experience for my 6-year-old, who can now name just about every vegetable imaginable - even if he won't eat most of them yet. ;)
The real deal

This farm is the real deal. It is filled with people who do their best to farm wonderful food, responsibly and organically as possible. I love being a part of this local operation. It puts you in touch with the care, work, and love that goes into what we eat. Such a wonderful place and great group of people!
A Fantastic Experience

We would wholehearted recommend Vollmecke Orchards CSA. We have been members there for 4 years and have loved every minute of it. The produce is fantastic as is the opportunity to learn about new foods and sustainable agriculture. Farmer Karen is really wonderful about teaching our children about the farm and respect for the land (she has even helped us out with a Flat Stanley project). Vollmecke has a wonderful community and we enjoy meeting new members every year!
