This year Super Hubby and I decided we would make a concerted effort to eat more organic, locally grown produce after reading this book:
With great persaverance, I continually contacted the owner Anne via email asking to be fit into one of their slots should one open. CSA's in case you don't know, fill up fast for the upcoming year, especially if they are top notch, which Storytree Farm is. Whether an opening actually became available, or whether Anne was just tired of my constant barrage of emails begging her to add our name to the list for the upcoming year, I may never know. What I do know is that we've been enjoying our fair share of Storytree Farm's beautiful bounty of fresh produce all summer long.
One of the main gardens.
The Little loves our biweekly trips out to the CSA. Our first stop is always to visit the Bwack Bwacks and Goes. (Chickens and Goats in toddler speak.)
As we wander up the side path towards the garden we find Anne and Nelson outside, preparing wooden crates full of food for each CSA family to take home.
Boxes prepared to go home.
Often times, The Little and I, after stopping by to chat with the ever friendly Anne and Nelson...

...take a walk around the farm finding produce that might make it into our basket in subsequent weeks.
Sometimes we just like to take in the beautiful flowers.
Other times we find unusual plants that we haven't dared to try growing in our own garden.
And inevitably, The Little is drawn to the riding "Zhoom, Zhoom!" as we round the corner of the farm.
We are so blessed to have found this lovely CSA. If you're interested in finding one of your own you can see what is available in your area. But remember, they fill up fast! Often by February.
