Member Testimonials
Thank you for always providing us with delicious food and new adventures!
I love going to Green Gate farms every two weeks to pick up my CSA share. I get to see the little piggies grow. There are smiling farmers who are always willing to stop and talk. It is such an open and sharing space. I feel welcome to walk around the farm and see what is happening. Besides all of this I take home REALLY fresh delicious veggies to eat!
I have loved being a CSA member! I feel so good about providing organic, local produce to my family of 7. It is so fun to get everything out of the bag and see what we’ve gotten for the week…a highlight for the kids and I for sure! Keep it up!
Thank y’all! I love the yummy healthy food!
