This is a busy time on the farm. Seeds have been ordered, greenhouses are being repaired and made ready, fields are being tested and amended with nutrients and trace minerals as we anticipate the start of the new season.  We are planning to offer more variety, new types of produce and even more local artisan products like fresh-baked goods, local raw honey, fresh maple syrup, our famous golden eggs, local hand-made soaps and more!

Your support is so important to our farmer.  Did you know that most people have no idea where their food is grown – let alone who grew it?  By supporting Farmhouse Delivery CSA, you know your farmer, understand how your food is being grown and who is handling it and you are providing your family with fresh-picked, nutrient-dense produce at an affordable cost.  Don’t forget to sign up by Feb. 1, 2015 to receive your discount!

We would love it if you shared our website on your Facebook page!  We will be offering a referral program in February for anyone who signs up because you shared Farmhouse Delivery CSA with them!  And even better, as a thank you for your referral, we will be offering some of our famous products for those referrals. Start spreading the word today!! Tell your friends and family about us, join our Facebook group pages, and “Like” our new Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/farmhousedeliverycsa

Thanks for your support as we share and grow this wonderful CSA!

    Your name, location and family size Donecia C.  / Nashville, TN/ 1

  1. How long have you been a member of Farmhouse Delivery? For the past two years (or seasons).
  1. Have you ever been a member of another CSA? No, I have not. My first time really understanding what a CSA is and what it does for the community, came about with my introduction to Farmhouse. I am a conscious eater, and am mindful of minimizing the amount of toxins and chemicals I eat.
  1. Were you a weekly or bi-weekly member? Bi-weekly
  1. Will you plan to sign up for the same membership again?  Yes
  1. What were your five favorite items in the box last season? Concord grapes / Tomatoes/ Sweet potatoes/ Kale/ butternut squash
  1. How has being a member of Farmhouse Delivery CSA benefited your family? It has challenged me to eat healthier, fresher, and eliminate the toxins in my body.
  1. What personal testimony could you share that would help someone who is considering signing up?  Once you understand Farmhouse Delivery’s healthy and natural processes to grow fresh produce without chemicals, you will be amazed, and question what you’ve been putting in your mouth to date! The Brubaker’s {Farmer} are not only knowledgeable, but they also have the biggest hearts! That is one combination that equates to fantastic customer service. At the end of the day, just do it! Honestly, what’s the worst that could happen? Ok, maybe you lose some weight, gain more energy, or save gas by having your produce delivered to your job.

Thanks of sharing your experience Donecia! If you’d like to sign up for a CSA, just click here for more information.

Wondering what’s in our Farmhouse Delivery CSA boxes? LOTS OF VARIETY! Our previous 28-week season included: strawberries, watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes, blueberries, herbs, heirloom tomatoes, potatoes, variety of summer and winter squash, kale, beets, chard, broccoli, mustard greens, cabbages, peppers, onions, radishes, eggplant, sweet potatoes, lettuces, corn, cucumbers, beans, peas, green onions, cauliflower, variety of peppers, brussels sprouts, honey, eggs, and more! If your family eats a lot of veggies a weekly 1/2 bushel box can provide ample food for the week. You also have the option of a bi-weekly 1/2 bushel box (14 weeks instead of 28 weeks) membership if you’d like to give it a try. Either way, you are guaranteed to have a wide variety of in-season, freshly-picked produce direct from the farm to your table!

Member Spotlight – Stacey W., Mt. Juliet

Fall CSA Box

Fall CSA Box

We asked the experts, our members, to share their personal Farmhouse Delivery CSA experience with us.  We’ll spotlight one of our CSA members each week to share what they value most as a member of our CSA. 

Your name, location and family size – Stacey W., Mt Juliet, family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids)
How long have you been a member of Farmhouse Delivery? Two full years, the year before that I purchased a few boxes at the end of the season. 
Have you ever been a member of another CSA? Yes, I tried a different CSA a few years ago before we moved to this area. It didn’t work well for my family. I had to drive too far for pick-up. The pick-up times also didn’t work with my son’s nap schedule. We didn’t keep it up for very long.
Were you a weekly or bi-weekly member? weekly
Will you plan to sign up for the same membership again?  yes, we will do weekly again.
What were your five favorite items in the box last season? okra, rhubarb, melons, berries, tomatoes….just 5? There was so much great stuff!
How has being a member of Farmhouse Delivery CSA benefited your family? It has definitely made us eat healthier. It also forces me to be more creative in my cooking instead of getting stuck in a rut and cooking the same old things all the time!
What personal testimony could you share that would help someone who is considering signing up?  I was a little bit overwhelmed by the thought of having crazy, unknown vegetables to do something with, but it’s really very manageable with a little bit of effort. The Facebook pages when everyone shares ideas is helpful. My sister lives out of state and does a CSA that provides many of the same things. We swap recipes a lot. I miss my fresh CSA produce now that it’s the off-season.

 

Thanks so much for sharing, Stacey! If you would like to sign up for the 2015 CSA season with us, just click here for more information.
