Thrill your taste buds with Purple and Orange Carrots! 

Do your carrots taste bitter, sometimes? 

Problem solved... 

Carrots should be stored away from fruits such as apples & pears, which release the ethylene gas that cause carrots to become bitter. 

Swiss chard (also known simply as chard) is a leafy green vegetable that is related to spinach. 

It is rich in vitamins A, C and especially K, and it is also a good source of magnesium, iron and potassium. 

Chard can be steamed or sautéed, and it’s great in soups, stews, casseroles, frittatas and quiches. Young leaves can be eaten raw in salads. 

Eat the rainbow this season. 

Teamwork makes the dream work!

Father and son tandem working to keep our soil healthy.

Farmer John is out mowing the mustard seed while Farmer Phil is in the background working it into the soil. Incorporating the mustard plants in to the soil acts as a natural bio-fumigant and helps to add organic matter.

Lots of hard work goes into preparing our Weekly boxes for you to enjoy!

If you are LOVING your current summer Weekly Share, DON'T MISS OUT on next season's Market Boxes. 

Why are we starting so early in August? 

208 people have already auto-renewed in July for the next season!!! 

We wanted YOU to have the "next chance" at our NEW MARKET BOXES for the 2021 Fall/Winter season BEFORE THEY SELL OUT!  

And BEFORE all the folks come to our Barnyard Fun Events starting in September. 

You see folks come from all around NW Ohio for the events and we talk about our CSA farm share bags on the wagon rides. They hear about all the convenient pick-up locations in the area. 

Is there anything different? YES ---> READ HERE... BOOK NOW!  

Fall/Winter Market Box Testimonial: Brian and Stacie Anderson 
"Our family and our farm business have been fortunate to partner with John, Diane and Phil Riehm over the past 3 years on their C.S.A. farm share venture. Their mission of getting farm fresh meals on the table of people across Northwest Ohio fits perfectly with ours -- giving folks a local meat and egg source to growing families."

"Our brown eggs, chicken packages, and Thanksgiving turkeys have been a hit with C.S.A. farm share members and we love the feedback they provide. We are blessed to work with the Riehm family. We recommend them and their C.S.A. Market Box to everyone we know, and look forward to a partnership for years to come."
