Stakeholder Review February 10, 2020

I joined the Seabreeze Family Farm CSA in February 2020 for three primary reasons:

  1.  I wanted to minimize my possible exposure to the nCoV19 virus while walking among strangers in crowded local retail stores each week
  2.  I wanted to be sure that none of the food I was bringing home had a Chinese origin
  3.  I am caring for my mother, now in hospice, and leaving the house is difficult

After receiving my first Seabreeze delivery, I am certain that I never will return to market shopping. The large-share collection is diverse and easy for me as a plants-only eater to consume completely in seven days. All the produce was fresh, clean, and blemish free. Although I was skeptical, I found local produce to be more flavorful than grocery-chain bought. And for all this, I now am paying a fraction of my former weekly grocery purchase because I am not forced to buy huge family portions of any one garden item.

I am so very appreciative of the effort that the Seabreeze family puts into the CSA. I encourage everyone to abandon any preconceived notions and discover how much safer, healthier, and easier CSA subscription can make a life.

…a BIG THANK YOU to your lovely driver for walking my delivery up our closed off street, steep driveway, and depositing it on my doorstep as usual.  Seabreeze delivers regardless of all obstacles!

Thanks for the nice note…

My boys look forward to seeing Doug with the “farm bag” every week! Thanks for sorting out the payment cancellation. I’ve been a part of CSA’s in Virginia, Hawaii & California and Stephenie’s farm will be hard to beat!

Diversity is key…

I was with another local CSA farm for a very long time and decided to leave because I just couldn’t stand one more box with kale, arugula, spring mix (with arugula), chard, etc. (aka dark leafy greens).  I know these are very trendy now, and maybe this is not gastronomically correct, but I’m literally sick to death of them and I absolutely loathe arugula.  When I realized I was giving away or composting more than I was actually using, I decided it was time for a change.  I love that Seabreeze has beans (green, purple, etc.), peppers, potatoes, onions.  I hardly ever received these types of things from the other local CSA farm and they are absolute staples in my kitchen, so I’d always wind up going shopping anyway.

The produce has been wonderful. I’ve really enjoyed being able to pick my own produce and I like the variety you provide.  I like that you will deliver to my house.

Our Wednesday Delivery…

Once again we received a beautiful bag full of nutrients and filled with love delivered by the young man that is ever so sweet. I just wanted to say each time we get a bag I can’t stop the kids from digging in and taking a bite out of the first thing their hands touch!! They get so happy and excited! The acorn squash and butternut squash came out of the bag and recieved a big “WOW!!! Momma when are you gonna cook that?!!”

Thank you again Seabreeze. Y’all are truly the best!

Loved the sorrel last week!

Made the rice portion of this recipe with the sorrel and it was a big hit!

I thought you might like this photo of our girl picking flowers at your place for Mother’s Day. Note the synergy of “Organic” and the emblem on her hat. Her brother was a UCSC Slug for a while. It fits the organic concept, right?

Thanks for your good work!

My deliveries are always great Donna, thank you. Jim is terrific and I always appreciate the wonders in my bag.  I really feel a part of Seabreeze.
