Member Spotlight, Jason and Nicole R.

csabox3This week Farmhouse Delivery spotlights members Jason and Nicole R. from LaVergne,TN

1. How long have you been a member of Farmhouse Delivery? Since August 2014.

2. Have you ever been a member of another CSA? No.

3. Were you a weekly or bi-weekly member? Bi-weekly.

4. Will you plan to sign up for the same membership again?  Yes.

5. What were your five favorite items in the box last season? Tomatoes, watermelon, purple sweet potatoes, kale, summer squash/zucchini.

6. How has being a member of Farmhouse Delivery CSA benefited your family?
We’ve been wanting to eat local, organic foods, but it is hard to get those at the grocery without it costing a fortune. This was so much better AND affordable. We’ve learned how to use some new ingredients and some recipes that feature the produce instead of reducing it to a side dish.

7.  What personal testimony could you share that would help someone who is considering signing up? We highly recommend joining Farmhouse Delivery CSA. It is cost effective in the long run and it feels good to eat healthy and support a local farmer!

Refer a friend, receive rewards! Spread the love for Farmhouse Delivery CSA during the month of February and receive a dozen of our pastured, soy-free, GMO-free eggs when your referral becomes a CSA member this month.  

Community Supported Agriculture is just that – support from your community!! And, this month, we need your support!  In order to make sure that we have enough members to support our farmer and his endeavor to add more of the veggies that you love – plus additional things like fresh herbs, more fruits and berries, raw honey, maple syrup and golden eggs – please share us with your family and friends, neighbors and co-workers, churches and social groups!   The best marketing is word of mouth! 

We would like to thank you for helping us in our grassroots campaign by giving you a dozen of our pastured soy-free, GMO-free eggs for every person that signs up as a weekly or bi-weekly member this month.  These eggs are normally sold for $4.50 per dozen.  There is no limit to our farmer’s generosity so tell everyone you know and if 28 people sign up because you referred them, then we will give you a dozen eggs every week throughout the CSA season.  

Your support and enthusiasm makes such a difference.  Because of you, Golden Rule Farm and Rolling Acres Farm are able to concentrate on growing the most nutrient-dense, chemical-free, fresh-picked produce – this side of the Mississippi….or at least that’s what we’ve been told!

Why Farmhouse Delivery CSA is the Right Choice

sprouts

Why Farmhouse Delivery CSA is the right choice.

Are you looking for an ethical, transparent farmer who is dedicated to raising produce that is nutrient-dense, chemical-free and delicious?

Is supporting a small farmer who grows and picks all his own produce important to you?

Are you looking for variety – but not a bunch of weird veggies?

Would you appreciate help planning your weekly menu with recipes, tips and storage hints?

Do you enjoy seasonal fruits and berries?

Are you interested in fresh herbs like thyme, rosemary, basil, lemon balm, peppermint, cilantro and parsley?

Would you enjoy trying new vegetables like kohlrabi or lemon cucumbers to expand your palate and add some excitement to your dinner table?

Do you want fresh picked produce that is a great value and affordable?

Do you want to know your farmer, know who grows your food?

Are you interested in getting the most bang for your buck from a CSA that offers produce from May – November, a full 28 weeks?

Is eating local, seasonal produce to improve your health of value to you and your family?

Do you want produce that is picked when ripe and ready – not picked days or weeks ago and allowed to ripen on a truck or in cold storage?

Does eating produce that is grown in rich, healthy soil and improved with trace minerals and nutrients play an essential role in your choice of a CSA?

Are you looking for a one-stop shop from a CSA that provides pastured eggs, local raw honey, local maple syrup, and other artisan products that are natural, pure and local?

If you answered “Yes” to the above questions, then Farmhouse Delivery CSA would be a great choice!!

We are interested in providing our members with a product that is not only affordable, but a great value.  We desire to give unbeatable customer service and the peace of mind that you are providing your family with the freshest, most affordable, nutrient-dense produce available in your area.

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 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.

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.
