Superior in all aspects. I have been a member of 2 other CSA’s previously and this has been the best experience by far. So much produce, excellent quality, and great recipes every week.
– Sarah from Madison
Freshest produce, great people, and simply the best! So happy I did my research and chose Driftless Organics! Their pictures of the boxes are no exaggeration! Loads of variety and the boxes packed to the brim with goodness!
I’m a new member this year and just have to tell you that these CSA boxes are GREAT! I’m having a blast. Fresh fennel!!?! I’ve never prepared it before, but it’s wonderful, SO GOOD stir fried with other vegetables, so much so that I’m disappointed there’s none in the box this week. I’ll have to go buy some. Thank you, thank you, thank you for exposing me to new, delicious, nutritious foods. This is creative and fun and tasty, and I wouldn’t be experiencing this if it weren’t for you. You’re obviously convinced of the value of your hard work, but just in case you’re wondering if it’s influencing and changing anyone else…it is! I’m a believer.

Also, this was our first year buying a CSA and we could not have been happier with it. So much beautiful produce! We ate like royalty this year. Please pass along our gratitude to everyone at Driftless Organics who works so hard this season. Our happy hearts and full bellies thank you.

This is my first CSA experience, and I love it! The food is beautiful (I have nearly cried twice opening the box), and the flavors and variety are just amazing…..
– Amy from Madison
This will be our 6th year with Driftless Organics and feel like we’ve grown up with you all! We’re looking forward to another amazing year and always look forward to the wonderful recipes and pictures. We’ve learned so much from your information over the years! Thank you for all of the work you do and please keep sending the updates. Here’s to hoping we can make it to the Harvest Party in 2015!!
– Derek & Pat from Plymouth
I just wanted to tell you that both my husband and I were So Pleased with our box last week (we had to give the first one away because we were on vacation–which I understand was very nice as well). The produce last week was absolutely amazing! Everything was so fresh and beautiful. I can’t tell you how much fun we had going through our box! Thank you so much for all the hard work and effort you all put into bringing this food basically to our door step. And the newsletter is awesome as well–very informative and fun to read. You all do such a nice job. We belonged to a crop share program last year and, just so you know, there is absolutely no comparison. You guys are by far the very best. : )
– Lisa from Eagan
Hi guys! So, last year we took a chance & tried a different farm for our csa- ONLY because the pick up was literally 2 blocks from our house…BIG mistake! We missed your jam packed/quality boxes & will never leave driftless again! thanks for being so awesome! Looking super forward to all the yummy food.
– Kate from Madison
THANK YOU and all of your hard workers! My expectations were 100% met and very much exceeded:) I have told EVERYONE I know how happy I have been with our weekly share. Not only is the produce TOP notch, but the high level of organization and communication is much appreciated. It has been AWESOME learning what is in season, how to store/prepare different produce…and most importantly, to put healthy food into my body! I am very much looking forward to next season!
– Trish from Madison
I’ve been a member of probably twelve different farms, and Driftless is the best by far. You all really embody the SPIRIT of Community Supported Agriculture, and also grow a huge variety of plants so people can really live off of what you send each week. Seriously, I could go on in great detail as to all the reasons Driftless is so good. I really miss you!
– Danielle from Madison (moved to New Mexico)
Just a note of encouragement and admiration. This is our first year with Driftless (but not our first year in participating in CSA’s). We have been THRILLED, AMAZED, SO HAPPY with everything you have offered, both in food, in recipes, in organization, in communication. Everything! We are thoroughly enjoying the delicious veggies (and strawberries) that we have received. Our three kids are trying new things each week and loving it all. So, know that we all take the risk of weather right along with you when we sign up for a CSA…we believe in local, organic food, and we’re willing to take this risk to support those who provide it. Thank you for being the one to provide.
– Brigid from St. Paul
I just want to say thanks again for the wonderful year of CSA produce. I really appreciate all that goes into every box. All the love and teamwork and excellence… yum! It’s really great to be a part of it, enjoying every bite. Thank you!
– Melanie from St. Paul
We love getting the box every other week. The quality was top notch and your e-mails. Newsletters, contact with your customers is excellent.
– Ron from St. Paul
We were first time CSA-ers this season and now totally hooked! Every week was a fabulous challenge to create meals from the beautiful array of veggies from your farm. We hardly visited the store! If you delivered milk (and cereal maybe) we never would have shopped at all. Even so we spent much more of the beautiful Minnesota summer enjoying time cooking and being outside than staring at produce at the store. So thanks for that, too! You guys are awesome!
– Elizabeth from Minneapolis
This was my family’s first CSA. Our family of 5 split our every other week boxes with my in-laws. We all loved it! It was fun trying new vegetables and great knowing most of our meal came straight from your farm. The variety was fun – the sungold tomatoes were a huge hit. They were gone in hours. My kids ate (and loved) brussels sprouts and parsnips for the first time because of you!
– MaryBeth from Minnetonka
We are splitting a weekly CSA box (community supported agriculture) between five people; every week we head over to the drop-off site in our neighborhood and get a beautiful box of fresh produce. We have enough produce for everyone; we only have one vegetarian in the bunch, so that may make a difference.
The owners are very committed to keeping members informed about the happenings in the farm. With each box, we get a list of a few recipes and how to store and prepare the different fruits and vegetables in the box.
What I love? Having fresh produce, being pushed to try new recipes, and trying vegetables I would probably never purchase at Kowalski’s or Whole Foods — being forced out of my comfort zone challenges my pallet and my questionable cooking ability. Driftless does a good job of combining standbys and interesting produce.
You guys are awesome. Truly you are what GREAT customer service is all about. You don’t get that much these days. Thanks! Can’t wait for veggies this summer!
