The proof is in the produce!
Here's what CSA members have to say about Black Kettle Farm
I feel good about eating your vegetables...it is direct and loving and real. I don't feel that yucky consumerist feeling that I feel in the pit of my stomach, like when I go to a big ol' grocery store.
I was continually impressed with the quality of the produce.
We loved knowing that our food came from a place we trusted and developing a relationship with the farmers was amazing and deepened that sense of trust.
Thanks for such clean veggies!
I really love the weekly updates and recipes. Those are wonderful!....Thank you, it's taken a boat load of pressure off me trying to grow this stuff....
When I think of the Kettle I think of carrots. I am not sure why but that's the first thing that comes to my mind, bright orange carrots.
Kettle Farm has been a journey into new and true veggies that have helped me expand my palate and recipes. The weekly process itself has become a special event to look forward too with the unknown treats constantly evolving. I am blessed to be part of this year’s crop and feel that all of the food was grown with positive energy and love. It should be said that the clean veggies were a huge help and looked right out of a Bon Appetit magazine which was so eye pleasing to me. Thank You for your care and love in making this possible!
Responses to the end of the season survey question, "How many people does a BKF share feed?"
"A share will feed a couple who cooks nightly and have hearty appetites. If you eat smaller meals or go out 1-2 times per week, a share would feed a family with 1-2 children."
"A share will fulfill a family of 4 who cooks dinner (including a meat dish) at home 5+ days a week with plenty of veggies."
"Most of our meals are from home-we both bring leftovers or I make soup or casserole for lunches for the week. We generally only eat out once a month." (Member of a two person household)
"...with the sheer volume of vegetables we've received, they are primarily what we eat and I've spent less overall then I would have had we not been in a CSA, and the food is way better and way better for me."
"I think it is a fabulous challenge to learn to eat locally, responding to the limitations of the season, weather and conditions. It is not only sustainable and responsible, it's rewarding! Once you have a taste for real fresh vegetables, the grocery store varieties become tasteless and unacceptable - so even though I miss salads in the winter, a quick look through the produce section at Hannaford's reminds me that it's very worth holding off 'till BKF can give me a real salad!"
