"We have been members of the CSA, both summer and winter, for several years now. Our CSA membership is important to us in so many ways: The vegetables are incredibly good. They are yummy and healthy and we enjoy them. This supports our goal to eat a majority plant based diet. We are introduced to new vegetables (and old favorites we had forgotten about) including trendy ones. (Here's looking at you Alison Roman.) We are eating local and supporting a local small business which is preserving agriculture in our community. We get to interact with Libby and James who are the best. We split our share with another family and enjoy the camaraderie and community this entails. Picking up a big box of vegetables for the week is convenient and facilitates healthy eating."

"We finally took the plunge and participated in the CSA for the first time in 2019. It was the best thing we ever did - the variety and quality was top notch - and it was so convenient to have a local pickup spot!"

"We love working with Russo's Roots! The half share is the perfect amount for our household. We love the variety in Spring and Summer and are excited by the opportunity to have fresh, farm grown vegetables in the winter!"

"For the last 3 summers and 2 of the last 3 winters I have enjoyed the vegetables from Russo’s Roots as a CSA member. I first encountered them at the Willimantic Farmer’s Market. Libby and James’ vegetables stood out from the crowd. They are high quality, fresh, clean and beautifully displayed. There is a wonderfully wide variety in the CSA share over the course of 3 seasons - - greens, raspberries, tomatoes, carrots, squashes (many types), beans, dried beans, potatoes, sweet potatoes, watermelon radishes, kohlrabi, turnips, rutabagas, cabbages (several different varieties), leeks, garlic, ginger, turmeric, on and on. Some standards, but always a surprise included. I had never seen fresh turmeric or ginger so fresh it had yet to develop a skin. Each dinner for the last several months it’s as if Libby and James are silent guests at my table. Here it is the 3rd week in January and I have super fresh spinach and kale in my refrigerator from Russo’s Roots. Need I say more?? So grateful."

"We have been members of the Russo’s Roots CSA for 3 years now. We have enjoyed every minute of it. My husband and I eat a Whole Food Plant based diet and prefer to eat organic whenever we can. James and Libby work so hard every year to make sure that what they grow will be good for all of us. They put their heart and soul into every aspect of their vegetables and fruit. Their produce is so much better than what you could buy at any grocery store. They offer recipes and storage options so you know what to do with the vegetables you receive each week. We love that they offer a winter share when the weather cooperates. Anyone who might be considering trying out a CSA - I would suggest that you definitely give it a chance and if you have the opportunity to join Russo’s Roots CSA, you will not be sorry!"
