Cheese, Flowers and Fruit-Additional Share Options at Inverbrook

For the last couple of years we have been pleased to offer a number of CSA (community supported agriculture) options from nearby farms in addition to our own vegetable CSA.  These options include cheese from HillacresPride, fruit from North Star Orchard and flowers from Three Bird Bouquets.  If you want to increase your consumption of local food and flowers, I strongly suggest you check out the links to the various farms and CSA options.  By the time mid-summer rolls around you can fill your kitchen with local vegetables, herbs, fruit, cheeses and flowers with just one simple visit to Inverbrook Farm each week.  Plus you will be supporting four local family farms with just one trip.  If you are looking for the perfect Valentines or birthday present for the locavore in your life, consider one or all of these options.  Not only will you be giving the gift of delicious cheese, fruit and beautiful flowers, you will be contributing to a strong local agricultural community.
You do NOT have to be an Inverbrook CSA member to pick up any of the various CSA options, although they complement each other very well.  These farms all make their deliveries on Wednesdays (the flowers are also delivered on Mondays and the cheese can last through until Monday) throughout the season; however the frequency, start and end dates are all different for each of the farms represented.  I encourage you to explore the links below and learn about the diverse and delicious CSA choices:
I want to do a little extra push for the delicious Hillacres Pride cheese shares because we need a minimum of 15 shares to make their delivery to the farm worth while.  Here are two links/reviews about Hillacres: 
I hope you will consider joining one or more of these farm options.  When late summer arrives and you are able to pair that amazing tasting apple from North Star Orchard with an aged cheddar from Hillacres Pride all made more enjoyable with the presence of a beautiful Three Bird Bouquet filled with sunflowers, zinnias and fragrant tuber roses--you we be happy that you took advantage of this opportunity.
