Rolling Hills Farm Fall Season CSA- 10 weeks of organically grown heirloom vegetables, herbs and flowers.
Today I delivered the last basket of our Fall season. I'm so grateful for the mild weather we had this fall. It sure made it much easier on us! Our Fall season lasted ten weeks. I thought I would share with everyone a little recap of all the baskets. Here goes!
Sorry, I don't have a picture for week 3.

Now for all of you that didn't participate in our CSA or a CSA in your area, think about all those tasty, fresh picked, and super healthy for you veggies that you missed out on.
Three quarters of Americans don't eat enough fruit and 87% don't eat enough vegetables. Most likely you are one of those people. I encourage you to eat your veggies, and fruit too! Find your local CSA and get a basket of fresh produce every week. You are far more likely to eat your recommended daily servings when you are delivered a basket of them every week.

The Average North Dakotan only eats 1.4 servings of vegetables a day. The recommendation is 3-5 servings. We got some work, or should I say eating to do North Dakota! It is so important that we instill the habit in are children now.

Our Fall season has come to an end but before you know it Rolling Hills Farm and CSAs across the country will be kicking off their Spring season. You might even be able to find a CSA with a Winter season if you live in a warmer part of the country. If you live in our neck of the woods then be sure to fill out our contact form so that we can keep you informed about our Spring and following seasons.
Are you already a member of a CSA? What is your favorite part? Do you think it helps you to eat more fruits and vegetables? Let us know in the comments.
Happy, healthy eating!
