Testimonials

Quotes from our members:

  • “I loved the organic, local grown concept and appreciate the hard work put in by all. Kudos. The variety of vegetables made me make new dishes and research recipes like never before.  I made the broccoli for dinner one night and my 13 year old daughter said it was the best she had ever had! I often shared the bounty with friends, who loved it!”

  • “Totally wonderful experience. It encouraged us to branch out and try new foods that we weren’t ordinarily used to. It was great fun getting the emails and trying to find new recipes and ideas of what to make for the coming week. I split a share with a co-worker and we both had more than enough for our families. Plus it made us feel better that we were supporting local agriculture. I would recommend it to anyone wanting good produce that is both affordable and convenient!”
    -URMC employee
  • “I thought this was such a great way to support local farmers and sustainable agriculture.  I was impressed with the delivery and consistent quality of the produce.  Everyone did such a great job, even though this program is still very young!  I truly hope this will be offered next year.”

  • “The opportunity to try new vegetables, to explore new recipes and to enrich our diet with locally grown product was a highlight of our year. Can’t wait to join the GFC next year.”

  • “My colleagues knew that they were missing something special when I’d rush out each Friday to get my haul.  The whole experience positive.  Thanks for making this program available.”
    -URMC employee
  • “I have been telling everyone who will listen that this is the future of how people should obtain food. Not only do I think it was a tremendous value, but the food is delicious, unbeatably fresh, diverse, and it supports local farmers. It fed myself and two others comfortably and I rarely had to go to the grocery store. Overall, this experience has opened my eyes to the importance of knowing where your food comes from and ensuring that the methods producing it are sustainable and healthy for all parties involved. Thank you so much…I absolutely cannot wait for the next growing season!”

  • “It was great to be a part of something that felt so right – it increased my husband’s and my intake and variety of veggies, the veggies were fresh, beautiful and local, the fruit was amazing, we were supporting local farmers, I didn’t have to drive anywhere to pick them up.  It doesn’t get any better than that!”
    -URMC employee
  • “To our friends at the GFC:  Thank you so much for organizing the collective.  I can hardly tell you how much we enjoyed the beautiful and delicious produce that we picked up every week from June through October.  The variety reminds us what a bountiful market basket our little corner of the world is.  And that variety every week doubled as a gentle reminder to try something new, even some things that we’d never heard of (like celeriac!).  Thank you so much, and we will be the first to sign up for another season.”

  • “My eating habits have never been better. I was “forced” to try new foods and cooking styles and insodoinglearned to eat better. I have become more conscious of the origins of my food and of the tremendous varieties that exist right in my own area.”
    -URMC employee
  • “The produce from the GFC gave my husband and I an opportunity to support local farms and their employees and was very convenient. Above all we enjoyed the quality of the produce we were cooking with. Who knew celery root was so delicious?”
