Our CSA: Customer Reviews

Fisher Hill Farm CSA

We had some past customers post last year about what they thought of our CSA. It means a lot to us to hear how happy people are with their share. We work hard to make sure that every year is a great one and we want nothing more than to see people use our produce.

One of the best parts for us is learning about our own produce from the folks who use it! We love hearing about recipes, family secrets, different methods of cooking things that we’ve never heard or thought of. It’s a perk of this job and one that has certainly kept us entertained under the tent and at our dining room table.

The relationships that we’ve built with our customers have helped us steer the farm in different directions, allowing us to help serve the community as best as we possibly can. We look forward to going to the markets to see the familiar faces every week and it’s nice to hear that many people feel the same way about us!

The term CSA means Community Supported Agriculture. But it extends beyond just buying a share that helps us get seeds in the ground. It quite literally helps in building a community around the bounty, solidifying a connection between food and people, a kind of formal bond that is very strong.

We are so lucky to have such a supportive community in Rochester. The markets, the people, and other farms and farmers have pulled together such a tightly woven fabric that really covers everything!

2021 is going to be a great year. Mostly because of the people who surround us that make every year a little better than the last.

Thank you.

The Holiday Countdown

Fisher Hill Farm Chicken Duck Turkey

What’s on your menu?

2020 is getting closer and closer to a close. Even if this year your holiday party will be smaller than in years past, and no matter what holiday you celebrate this time of year, it will be a great way to usher out one of the strangest years on record.

We would like to thank everyone for their interest in local food. The enthusiasm our shopper have had this year has been awesome, and at time, unbridled! Many people used this year to explore new recipes while they were stuck inside and we were able to learn so much from all of you. Thank you.

As the year comes to a close, we want to let everyone know some menu options available.

  1. Turkey – We have a limited supply of fresh turkey the will be ready for pick up starting 12/19. Follow the link below to put down your $20 deposit to guarantee a fresh turkey for your table. I WANT TO PLACE A DEPOSIT ON A TURKEY.
  2. Duck – They are frozen and will take about 2 days to thaw in the refrigerator. Sizes vary. If there is a specific size you would like us to bring to the market please let us know in advance by calling or messaging us. If we don’t respond we didn’t get your message. Don’t be afraid to message again. We want you to get what you like.
  3. Chicken – We always have a pretty good supply of chickens at the markets with us.
  4. Stewing Hens – Low and slow works best for these. We have posted recipes in the past to use them. No matter what recipe you use, your whole house will smell delicious!
  5. We also have eggs on hand as well, along with lots of winter storage veggies.

This is the perfect opportunity to make a TURDUCKEN!

Not sure what that is? It’s a chicken stuffed into a duck and then stuffed into a turkey. Here’s a video of the legendary John Madden ripping one apart on live national television with his bare hands:

Crop Report: Fall 2020

Many articles, blogs, and conversations start with the same thing this year….I can’t believe this year is almost over! It’s been such a tough year!

That is most certainly true. But one thing that didn’t change all that much is the fields. Rain and sun still came and we still had to weed. Now the fall is in full swing. Despite the pandemic, the crops have come in nicely for the fall and we’re excited to share them with you.
