I just wanted to say how much we have enjoyed all the beautiful produce you've given us and how much we appreciate all the hard work that goes into it. We feel you have improved the quality of our lives! Already going into remorse that it's only going to last another month!!
Thank you for all of your hard work this season (and beyond). This was my 2nd year as a CSA member, and as long as we live in Seattle, we intend to be members. Thanks to Helsing Junction, my 3 year old learned to love raw kale & spinach salads, tried bok choy, fell in LOVE with fresh garbanzo beans (asks me for them every week), ate eggplant "french fries", tried just about everything we brought in and is still nibbling on carrots regularly because they help him see airplanes far away. The adventure of picking up our "farm box" and putting them in our basket and meeting other Helsing Junction kids at our pickup spot was enough to pique his interest in things that would have been far more challenging for him to try. We're looking forward to making some pumpkin treats with our sugar pie pumpkins this weekend. Thanks again, and I hope you get some much deserved R&R this winter.
Thank you, favorite farmers!

So, from the bottom of our very satisfied stomachs, thanks, for all that you do.

I must say that had I known the quantity and variety of produce that would arrive each week in our “small” share, I probably would have been scared away from the program. The saving grace for me was your recipes. I love to cook and could have searched the web for recipes to accommodate garlic scapes or tomatillos, but I never had to venture farther than your own recipe collection. The quality and variety of your recipes was top-notch, and finding recipes that incorporated three, four, or even five of the items in our CSA box felt like matching all the numbers on a lottery ticket.
Thank you for introducing our family to the wonders of fresh, locally grown produce– I know we will be back for more next year, and I think we may bring a few more converts with us. The ultimate compliment I can pass along came early in the season from my 13 year-old son, who turned up his nose as he watched four or five different vegetables go into a pasta dish. Forced to try the dish or go without dinner, he proceeded to polish off two full helpings and then pushed back from the table and said simply “I would eat that again.”
excited about our cooking all season long. Our storage share has only recently run out. Our first CSA pick up day is June 18th, which just happens to be my birthday! What a wonderful birthday present getting our very first box of the year will be!
Thanks for all you do.
I just wanted to say thanks for all the wonderful food and recipes we received from you in our first year of CSA membership. Tuesdays rapidly became my favorite day of the week...I loved getting the news from the farm almost as much as I enjoyed opening the box to see what goodies were in store for us that week. It was such a pleasure to enjoy familiar favorites as well as be challenged to experiment with produce that I might not ever buy, when left to my own devices. Kale, cauliflower and parsnips are now happily entrenched in my veggie lexicon, thanks to the CSA!
I've saved all the recipes from the season and will definitely make many of them again and again. I'm looking forward to next year's subscription already. I'm so happy the CSA model has been a success- both for your farm, and for so many others. It's so gratifying to see this type of relationship taking hold in our communities, to feel like we are doing something about the problem of industrial agriculture and climate change, while at the same time fostering a love of good whole foods...something that's been slipping away from recent generations.
Thanks again and best wishes!
