Farm visit: It was delightful seeing children chomping on curly salad friendly kale and carrots picked before their eyes! The feedback was wonderful. Stacey who brought her daughters along posted on Facebook after the visit that ..With the amount of effort and time that goes into such quality produce, I’m never complaining about the cost of fresh fruit and veggies again! So worth every cent! Thanks Stacey it is great to have your knowledge and understanding conveyed through your feedback.
