Health Benefits of Ginger and Turmeric
Not only are ginger and turmeric great on their own, but they actually work better together. Like many natural substances, the different phytochemicals present interact with each other for increased potency. Compounds called gingerols in ginger act as bioenhancers (source). This means that they help your digestive system absorb other compounds. Since the main active component of turmeric - curcumin - is poorly absorbed on its own, it’s likely that consuming it with ginger helps the process along.

Our CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) Program
Fisherville Greenhouses, Quality Produce Fresh from the Farm
We have been growing the finest grape and beefsteak tomatoes for the past 6 years. In 2010 we started growing a variety of other vegetables and now offer a summer and winter CSA harvest basket program.
Our farm focuses on growing a variety of quality produce with minimal environmental impact.
Nutritionally, fresh local produce is surpassed by nothing else. Receiving fresh local vegetables on a weekly basis throughout the summer and a biweekly basis throughout the winter enables you to have healthy choices to offer your family year round.
Although we will do our best to provide you with a wide variety of vegetables, farming and weather can be unpredictable especially in winter. This can on occasion mean that the value of your box may be less than you paid for. However we will always try to grow more for you than you paid and a bountiful harvest can bring great reward.
A typical biweekly box may include:
- Sweet potatoes
- Fresh cut mixed salad greens
*available until December
We run 10 week sessions with two sizes of shares available. A small share is great for 1-2 people priced at $200 and a large share is great for a family priced at $300.
