I’ve had the pleasure of being a member of Eight Mile Creek Farm’s CSA program for several years and have enjoyed not only the fresh organic favorites such as cucumbers, cabbage, squash and green beans, but also unique varieties including rainbow carrots, crispino lettuce and siberian kale. And the eggs – did I mention the organic eggs?! The shells come in a variety of delicate hues, and the yolks are large and luminous with a color that brings to mind marigolds and sunshine! I’m also a fan of the many photos which Pam includes in her blog about life on the farm, which frequently feature her endearing and lovable horses, cows and dogs as well as the beautiful surrounding farm land. My family is happily spoiled by the farms rich and abundant produce, and we’re proud to support Pam and her amazing woman-owned and operated business.
