What our customers are saying…

“The greens are not only lovely but delicious. There are just the two of us and I haven’t spent much time in the kitchen. Your lovely greens have given me a reason. Thank You.” — Roberta ( Bobbie ) Wilson, 2012 CSA customer


“My only regret is that you have spoiled us.  Once we realized how wonderful your produce tasted, store bought produce simply does not measure up.  Congratulations on steadily growing your business.” –Kurt Schmidt, 2011 CSA customer


“Not only does it feel good to support local organic farmers, but the quality and variety of the fresh food is amazing! It’s like a mini-Christmas every week.” –Jonny Meyer, 2009 CSA customer
