We all know that eating fresh fruits and vegetables is one of the best things we can do for our bodies. Did you know that organic fruits & vegetables are available throughout Elkhart and Lagrange counties by local farmers?
My wife Juli and I buy a regular share of produce each year from Farmstead Foods; a division of Pleasant Ridge Organic Farms.
The cost for a regular share of produce this year is $280 and a Large share $495. If paid before March 10th, a $20 dollar discount is given. The harvest usually lasts from June – September (16-18 weeks) and includes whatever is in season at the time.
We have really enjoyed going together as a family to pick up the produce. The Farmwald family are Amish, and just love showing our daughter Anna the Blue Bird houses and other farm animals. They also have a BBQ cookout with all the families to kick off the season.
For more information you can stop by our office to pick up a flier or contact Delbert Farmwald at 4055 N 1150 W Shipshewana, IN 46565.
Here’s to healthy eating,
