Perfect! We share the CSA with our neighbors because you get so much food. Every week we pick up farm fresh eggs, milled flour bread and 8 items of vegetables and fruit. Each month you get 1 extra item from the store. I did the math and it costs less then any of the stores around here. Monday you get an e-mail about the items send. A 2nd e-mail with recipes follows right after. What I love about it, is finding new recipes to cook with the more less usual items like Kohlrabi. You also can go to, or order from the store and get a discount.
This is a perfect program for any health conscious family.
Seriously, if you are thinking of joining a CSA, I highly recommend Breezy Willow. If you are not ready for the full CSA experience, go visit the farm store on weekends. I promise that you will be impressed and will walk away with fabulous eggs, cheese, produce and other goodies made there at the farm.
Very Friendly and excellent produce!
We have just finished our third year as participants in Breezy Willow Farm’s early-season CSA (March to May). We keep returning because the quality is high and the owners and staff are very accommodating. We’re about to take the plunge and sign up for the regular season so that we don’t have to miss out on more excellent produce!
This was the first time I finally decided to participate in a local CSA. After looking around, I decided on Breezy Willow Farm because of the variety of both fruit and veggies and I loved the weekly allotment of eggs and bread choice! My grocery bill was a quarter of what it usually is and my weekly trip turned into every other week for essentials.
Not only does Breezy Willow Farm offer the fresh food, they make sure that every week you know a few days in advance what is coming AND find you delicious, new recipes to try! This makes hating beats very, very difficult! 🙂
One week I couldn’t pick up my allotment so went out to the farm to pick it up on Saturday. JOY! They had my stash ready and it was as fresh as could be!
LOVED this experience and have signed up for summer!
One more thing, the shares are very generous! We are a small family and I had so much food each week I was able to share with a local family in need. Grateful, Eating Healthier and Happy!
Having participated in Breezy Willow Farm CSA for the past year, after having been away from Maryland since 2003, I want to heartily “ditto” all the reviews posted.
Before moving from Maryland, I had gardened in Baltimore County for about 20 or 25 years, growing many vegetables and some berries, plus lots of flowers. My growing practices were “organic” before the word became the “in” way to garden.
Since I mostly cook for one person now, I can attest to the fact that using the fresh, organic foods from Breezy Willow saves me money – the greens (lettuce, spinach, etc). last me at least twice as long with no spoilage, as the same grocery store-bought items.
Another Benefit of Sustainable Practices – Less Waste!
“Thrilled with Breezy Willow’s CSA”
My family of 4 has been a part of the Breezy Willow farm’s June – November CSA for 3 of the past 4 years. Great service, great fruits and vegetables, great eggs, great bread, great extras like Strawberry Butter jam and Apple Butter … I always get the feeling that they are working overtime to make their CSA experience an excellent one.
Even though I am a bare minimum cook, the CSA is helping us move to much healthier eating. I’ve heard it said that “you either pay more for your food or more for your health care”. I love knowing that there are no GMOs, no crazy use of pesticides, heritage seeds, good farming practices, etc.. etc.. However, I think we are saving money overall by eating our CSA food and not eating out.
It is amazing how very good fresh vegetables taste. It is also giving my children, my husband and I great exposure to a few new vegetables along with the favorites.
This year we are also trying out their Early Bird (March – May) CSA.
“Breezy Willow Farm The Best Farm Ever”
This is our first year with a CSA, and hopefully many more. I already signed up for the Spring Session (March – May) and I’m beginning to fret about where to get great produce from Dec – March!
Portions are generous – It’s a value added CSA, which means I can buy my meat, chicken, cheese there as well (and the cheese is DELICIOUS!) I am so, so spoiled. Herbs and hot peppers are offered every week free of charge in addition to your weekly share.
I love the variety of produce – I love the fact that I can choose my own – I don’t need gigantic apples if I don’t want them. I never have to worry about a mass egg recall, and the produce is all IPM or organic. How much better can you get?
The people at Breezy Willow are always helpful, informative, and willing to work with you. If they have an abundance of something, you can usually buy extra at a reasonable price.
I think it’s the best CSA in the HoCo area 🙂
