With the help of Harvest Kitchen my life has become much much healthier. – L.T. one person vegetarian subscriber

I have had several life changing events in my life: graduation from the University of Michigan, being ordained an Episcopal Priest, becoming the father of three splendid daughters, but I never expected a change in my eating habits to be a life changing event, but thanks to Harvest Kitchen that has happened. I live alone (that is, almost alone, as I have a Great Pyrenees dog as a companion) and before Harvest Kitchen walked into my life, I was choosing TV dinners from the supermarket or ordering in sweet and sour something for dinner. That is now in the past, as my life with the help of Harvest Kitchen has become much much healthier. I  pick my dinners up at the Harvest Kitchen booth on Saturday morning, expecting some pleasant surprises, and, I am never disappointed. The meals, always on the high side of healthy, are varied and ample. That, of course, would be enough but there is a bit more: I greatly enjoy supporting local food growers and providers. If you would like to experience a life changing event, include Harvest Kitchen in your plans. Like me, you will not be disappointed, and you may even write me a note to thank me for steering you in this direction.

There are lots of reasons why Harvest Kitchen is great.  If you don’t make time to cook but still like to eat well, you can enjoy wholesome food that is ready to eat.  The food is fresh, local, and sustainably grown, so you can eat with a clean conscience.  But I also love being exposed to ingredients and ways of preparing produce that I might not have encountered on my own.  We’re so lucky to have such a program in Ann Arbor, especially one that’s so affordable!

I love Harvest Kitchen:  the food, the philosophy, the people … and their collective, positive impact on my life.

If you are a vegan, I especially encourage you to consider subscribing.  Before joining Harvest Kitchen, I thought there were some prepared dishes for which no vegan version existed.  I have never been so happy to have been wrong!

Each and every week, I am delighted with the fresh, innovative creations these food imagineers dream up and execute.  Their offerings are every bit as good as Mom used to make (and my mom was a *phenomenal* cook!).

If you are new to Harvest Kitchen, you are in for a real treat…

I am actually saving money, and more importantly, those extra vegetables in the bottom of my refrigerator that I never got around to using aren’t going bad.I no longer feel guilty about not cooking every day.  I know I am getting better meals, and the time saved is terrific. – P.C. Two-person Omnivore subscriber

Having been a member of Community Farm of Ann Arbor since I moved here in 1986, I have always appreciated the summer harvest and weekly vegetables.  I watched as Mary began offering prepared foods using the members’ shares, but initially I thought the extra cost might be too much for my budget; I also felt somewhat guilty for not preparing the food myself.  The first year she offered the prepared foods over the winter, however, I went in with two other families, taking a quarter share, and oh! my! what delicious dishes were prepared in their kitchen that first winter.  I was hooked!

I discovered the following spring and summer that with Harvest Kitchen I was actually saving money, and more importantly, those extra vegetables in the bottom of my refrigerator that I never got around to using no longer went bad (you should see what Harvest Kitchen can do with all those garlic scapes!).  I have continued with a seasonal plan throughout the Kichen’s transitions and I have been delighted with the new offerings.  The vegetables and the meats and the extraneous products come from a widening circle of local organic farms.  There are multiple ways of purchasing and various types of shares to fit differing family needs and budgets.  I save money because I almost never stop for fast food anymore and my restaurant-going has been cut way back.  If I can’t eat all the portions from my share for the week, the containers allow for freezing.  The food is delicious, nutritious, and, always, local! I love the new on-line order option and the “freezer specials” when I want to stock up or supplement my normal portion for sharing with a larger group.

Perhaps what I enjoy the most, however, is the wonderful variety and the resulting surprises in the prepared dishes.  Mary’s blogs about each week’s offerings tantalize me with mouth-watering descriptions, so when I read at the beginning of the week the details about what I will be picking up in a couple of days, I anticipate with considerable delight which of the dishes I will eat first or which I might share with my grandchildren.  I no longer feel guilty about not cooking every day.  I know I am getting better meals, and the time saved is terrific.

Week after week, I feel gratitude to all the staff at Harvest Kitchen.
