What are our CSA Share Members saying about their experiences at Good Work Farm?
We invited our members to offer us testimonials encapsulating their experience as share members in 2013; below is a selection of the generous and articulate responses from our gracious share members.
"I look forward to every Friday afternoon's drive to the farm to discover the week's bounty. Because of Good Work Farm's vegetable variety, my husband and I have discovered many new yummy vegetables that we have never tried before such as kohlrabi, turnips and tastoi. The extra bonus of a farm bouquet of self picked flowers each week also brings beauty into our home. We really appreciate getting to know our farmers, getting to see where our food is grown and having a better understanding of the farming business."
"So glad we joined. We've gotten a lot more than just delicious fresh veggies (and plenty of them) that we can eat with confidence. Without putting any demands on us, we're part of something bigger than us, that we're sharing with other people. Going to the farm for pick-up is something we look forward to, not just for the veggies. It's also great to sometimes meet fellow CSA members or Anton or just to enjoy the beautiful land that is being cared for and feeding us so well."
"There is a joy experienced when eating your vegetables. We feel a connection to our farmers, the land and the cycles of life. We love experiencing the seasons changing through the food we eat. It heightens our our appreciation of each vegetable when it appears in our share and increases our anticipation for it next year."
"We, as a family, have become more aware of food. We are learning about processed foods, GMO’s, pesticides, and the harmful effects of them. Good Work Farm provides us with GOOD FOOD. It’s comforting to know that the vegetables we receive from the farm are grown without harmful pesticides. We find it comforting to know our farmers and talk with them, as well as, supporting a local business. We are a family of 3 and the CSA share size this year was perfect for us and then some! The vegetables are fresh and tasty! We are so happy that we decided to become members of the Good Work Farm CSA."
