Give Community Agriculture Shares for the Holidays




 

 

 

Middlebury Farms has been growing a wide variety of certified organic heirloom vegetables, herbs and fruits since 2009 in Harvard, Illinois, and offer free home delivery to their community supported agriculture (CSA) members in the northwest Chicago suburbs of Chicago. Membership for 2017 has opened to area residents, who may call to learn more and sign up for home delivery.

         This high-quality, fresh-picked produce is locally grown in Harvard and Woodstock and bears the USDA Organic and MOSA-certified organic logos because it is really organic. They handpick the harvest, wash, chill and pack the crops so they are able to deliver within 24 hours of coming from the field. Owner Peter Grubbe says the farm staff enjoys working with chefs and members to learn what produce varieties they like, and to educate them about the crop varieties in which the farm specializes.

         Each box includes 10 items in either 20 weekly deliveries or 10 biweekly boxes. The late-season 2016 CAS boxes typically contained heirloom tomatoes, basil, tricolored beans, fingerling potatoes, red onions, cherry tomatoes, golden beets, dinosaur kale, gourmet mix lettuce and cucumbers.

 

To set up free home delivery for 2017, call 224-588-7457, email [email protected] or visit MiddleburyFarms.com. See ad on page 26.
