At Adam’s Heirlooms, WE ONLY PLANT HEIRLOOMS. Everyone knows Heirloom Tomatoes have great colors & taste. But what about all the other vegetables? We grow Heirloom Everything!! That means you will get Heirloom Greens, Heirloom Eggplant, Heirloom Basil, etc. This also means NO Hybrids & No GMOs.
We offer All Natural, Great Tasting Heirloom Produce, and give you a Taste of History with each share you receive.
Many people have asked us “What is an Heirloom?” Heirloom varieties are at least 50 years old, most of our seeds date to before 1900 & earlier. It means they are not hybrid or genetically modified. Another term that goes along with Heirloom is Open Pollinated, meaning you can save the seeds, plant them next year, and get the exact same plant year after year. Heirloom seeds are not modified or manipulated for long storage or long shelf life, as the hybrids for the grocery store are. They were carefully and naturally cross pollinated to produce great tasting crops. They will look a little different, but hopefully you will find that you enjoy the visual variety as well as the great taste! We feel that Heirloom crops are important for our health & our society because they don’t require ‘man’ to interfere with nature.
Extra Benefits of Joining Adam’s Heirlooms CSA
Recipes on the Website. We want to inspire you to try items you may have never tried or tried in the past and think you don’t like them. It all comes down to preparation. We believe in healthy eating, so the recipes on our site reflect that belief. We also beleive that good food shouldn’t be hard to prepare. We hope this will help you to experiment and try things you may not have tried in the past. These recipes will also be posted on our blog page.
Community Support. When you sign up with Adam’s Heirlooms you are not only supporting our farm, but also the work we do in the community. We use urban backyards in the Midvale area. These properties are generally owned by senior citizens, who can no longer or no longer desire to garden in their own yards. They provide the land and water for our use and in return we improve the property for gardening with perpared beds and drip irrigation. We also give them first pick of the crops they like to eat. They are able to walk out into thier backyards to gather naturally grown, great produce. I think more than the produce, they enjoy the daily visits as we come to their property to plant, water, & weed each day. We have a great group of land owners who we now call friends.
We also feel strongly that by changing unproductive land that was in weeds or grass we are doing our part to conserve resources and help protect our community. Transitioning lawn into garden and using drip irrigation, reduces the amount of water needed to sustain that property and that’s good for all of us. Turning weed patches, into gardens reduces the spread of weed that plague us all. And that’s being a good neighbor.
We look forward to getting to know each of you as we share together in this adventure of a CSA and support one another with good food & good friendships.
