  1. How did everything turn out with the produce from here at Wilson Farm?

      The CSA was great! We have been very pleased with the produce and the recipe recommendations. The list on the web turned out to be pretty useless. I understand the challenges so I recommend not publishing it at all if it can’t be accurate.
