The Real Deal
By: Laura Gonzalez
My farmers are Phil Noble and Gary and Mel Leavitt. I say that with confidence and conviction after being a member of Inland Empire CSA for years. They are committed to the local, organic movement and are doing what they can to make local possible for us in San Diego on a larger scale in the years to come. Their farms are beautiful, thriving places, with great tasting food and a deep commitment to integrity. The boxes burst with freshly picked produce, and those folks who enjoy eating seasonally and being creative with their cooking will be very happy with CSA membership. I was a member of another CSA for several years before finding Phil at the Hillcrest Farmer's Market. The produce was spotty from that other CSA, and I was often disappointed. It is not like that with Inland Empire CSA boxes; the items are always fresh and just picked, and taste great. Having two farms that contribute to the CSA means that there is a wider variety in the box each week. I also get honey and eggs from them, which are wonderful. I'm so proud to tell people that I know my farmers, and that I trust them to feed my children.

Happy CSA Member
By: Tammi Demchuk
I am a new member (4 months) to the Inland Empire CSA and I am an extremely satisfied customer. I am happy with everything the CSA has to offer. The vegetables and fruit have been fresh, the variety is terrific, and I am just completely satisfied. In the beginning I had a lot of questions and my phone calls were always quickly returned, and recently I had a question that I messaged on Facebook which was also quickly answered. I like that communication is so easy. I also like the convenience of the pick-up location. I give CSA 5 stars. I recommend Inland Empire CSA to anyone interested in local, seasonal, organic, produce. Thank you :)
Sincerely, Tammi Demchuk (& family)
I love it!

I'm a fairly new member, received 2 weeks of shares so far and I'm loving it. It forces me to try new things, new recipes, allows my kids to eat healthier, balanced diets, and I feel as though I'm helping the community by buying locally grown, environmentally friendly, more nutritious foods. The goods have been tasty and fresh, and the people who help to distribute them are very friendly. I hope to continue doing this for a long time!

Have been members since just about the beginning. We love the variety and amount of produce we get every week. I love to cook seasonally with local produce, this is a great way to do both.

We are a new member of Inland Empire CSA this year. How did we ever exist on supermarket food for so many years? Thanks to our local organic farms we are experiencing fine, unique, and fresh produce beyond our expectations. Thanks so much!
