This morning, Mr. Sweet Greens and I sat down for a cup of coffee together. It felt like a long time since we have had a chance to just sit together quietly. It was nice. We talked about what organic meals we want to plan for the rest of October. We decided to start looking for a CSA to join, since we have been using more and more vegetables in our cooking. After a little research we found Kai Kai Farm and Grove owned by Diane and Carl Cordeau who have grown vegetables and strawberries without pesticides and mineral fertilizers since 2008. And the best part – they are just down the street from us!
We have been a member of a CSA before in Colorado and learned that for a family of three a smaller share is exactly what we need. Since Kai Kai Farm and Grove’s CSA offers both a weekly ($440/annual) and bi-weekly ($280/annual) memberships, we plan to opt for the bi-weekly. The membership includes a great diversity of high quality produce grown from October – May. Each share typically includes; lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, beans, peas, onions, broccoli, cabbage, eggplant, cucumbers, squashes, strawberries, and herbs. All of which we use on a weekly basis – so this should be a perfect.
I called Kai Kai Farm and Grove this morning and spoke with Carl and I was super impressed! He was very friendly and helpful and answered all of my questions. He was also very accommendating, saying that we could visit the farm anytime – just to call ahead. He also mentioned that we can tell them exactly what we would like to receive and what items we don’t want – so we can get exactly what we can use! Eben and I plan to visit the farm this afternoon, I will share what I find out!
Are you a member of a CSA? What are your thoughts? Do you find that you are able to use everything that you receive each week?
