I’ve wanted to visit our CSA farm since joining and when they announced blueberries being ready for U-pick, I knew it was the time to go. I picked a beautiful 2 lbs of blueberries and paid $4. The weather could not have been more beautiful and one of the owners, the husband of the husband-wife team, gave us a tour of the farm with its history, goals, weather woes, and everything in between. They are kind souls (I’ve met Karen when she’s delivered our CSA share), so it was great to meet her other half and some of their staff. It’s a very rewarding feeling to not only know but see where your food comes from and to meet the people that work day-in and day-out, literally, to put wholesome, local food on our table.
If you’re in the southwest Michigan or Chicago area (they delivery shares to Chicago and attend several of the Chicagoland area farmer’s markets), be sure to check out Big Head Farm!
Here’s some pictures from the day…
