I  get excited when some new friend asks about the CSA, All things Organic program!! It means folks are getting the idea that Organic & Locally grown food has so much more energy than “other” produce.  It’s good to see people taking care of themselves, the environment and their families.  We know that it may be easier to go to the local superstore. Just like we know it is easier to gas and spray our food but we choose not to. We emply sustainable agricultural practices.
Our promise to you is that we will provide high quality produce, raised in Organic farming practices with the highest respect for all living things and to try to make you happy.  Thank you for blessing us with your order!
