(We love to hear from you! This was some feedback from a returning Bountiful Basket Member that we wanted to share. We suspect that it may answer some of the questions a lot of folks have about the program. )
… the only one that had comparable selection to yours was the first one I joined…and it was quite a bit more expensive. I appreciate that a lot of CSAs include unusual crops as a fun introduction to new foods, but I found those would oftentimes be wasted if we didn’t like them or didn’t know how to use them in our regular cooking routine, plus I felt they took space in the box from more practical veggies.
I love that yours has all the tried and true standards and I can count on the whole basket being used by week’s end – and at a price that has other CSAs beat.
I also really like that you offer large and small basket options; for my small family I would always buy the “half-share” option at other CSAs, which was a full-share box but picked up every other week instead of every week, which meant less-frequent fresh produce and a challenge to get through everything before it went bad.
The small basket is the perfect size for our family. “
There you have it! In summary…
- Varied selection
- Not too many ‘unusual’ (aka puzzling!) items
- Reasonable price
- Size options to fit differing needs
- Fresh supply EVERY week (regardless of basket size)
…and of course….
- ALL local, home-grown, right here at Miller’s Bay Farm!
Have we got you thinking about it?
