Reviews for: Earnest Earth
A True Urban CSA
By: Andi Crist (Jan 23, 2019)
I have known Kerem and Earnest Earth for the last six years through many changes from staff to farm relocation. They have always managed to impress me with their commitment and advancements over the years, and I could not be more proud to have them in our neighborhood.
We love going over to the farm to pick up our stuff. It's exciting to see the garden growing and see what's coming up next. My son loves to come with me because Kerem will pick things directly from the rows so he can try new plants. Even though he's six and doesn't really like greens, he's excited to see how things grow and the gardeners are always very welcoming and excited to show off what they're working on. They've got great tips on how to cook different things and love to hear how we've used their produce. It's just a very warm and welcoming community and we are really happy to support their endeavor. If you love knowing your farmers and seeing where your food comes from, highly recommend Earnest Earth.
Best local food, competitive price!

Beautiful produce of a surprising variety given their acreage, outstanding relationship with the community around their farm (Garfield Park), excellent farm parties (though not nearly frequent enough!), truly passionate farmers who care about the soil and their relationship to it, my only complaint is that now the produce I see in grocery stores makes me really sad. Thankfully my full share was enough to ensure I have preserves enough to last my wife and myself until the much anticipated first harvest!
These guys are the real deal, if you care about local food then you should be supporting them. Can't wait to see what the next year brings, I recommend them to all my friends and acquaintances. I'll be signing up for a CSA from them for the rest of my time in Chicago for sure!
