I have yet to pass along our feedback - but wanted to share the fact that we are LOVING your produce. We are coming close to being customers for a year and you have exceeded our expectations. Immediately we noticed the difference in the taste and look of the produce that we are receiving and saw how quickly food does perish when they are not sprayed with preservatives (we have since figured out a system of which food to eat first from our basket). I would say on a weekly basis, I rave about your farm and your food drop process and pass along your website, any chance I get. Both my parents grew up on farms (dairy) so I can appreciate how hard you work in this 24/7 - 365 day a year. So thank you for all your hard work, it does not go unnoticed and we feel lucky that we are able to enjoy such great food (both fresh and frozen) at such affordable prices and that gets delivered right to our door.

Hello Terry and Stuart
We just returned home from our trip to Italy--to a fridge full of fresh produce--a real luxury and bonus in our life--you could charge us anything......We are happy to support your great principles and hard work. jane
Thank you so very much for the fabulous basil! I adored it and it kept amazingly well in the plastic bag (still fresh today). I am delighted you plan to include a selection of herbs in future deliveries as garlic and fresh herbs are the mainstay of my cooking in the summer. Thanks again both of you for the superb quality and taste (and cleanliness) of your produce. Your thoughtfulness and sheer excellence in providing it (heritage varieties, herbs and edible flowers, wow!!) are much appreciated. All the best
We're looking forward to your home delivery service.... We have been interested in participating in a CSA-type (Community Supported Agriculture) arrangement for a while -- but your approach is even more flexible for us! Thanks.
Everything is delicious and just how we like it - skinny green beans, tiny carrots, lovely little red potatoes. The pink & yellow beets are amazing - and so much fun to show off! We tried the sweet little squashes on the bar-b-q (the zucchini cut in half, the pattypan whole), grilled a couple of minutes a side - YUM!
Just wanted to let you know how much we really appreciate your service. The food is always wonderful and we love the surprise element of not knowing exactly what we are getting and of course, receiving the new items. I hope your customers fully appreciate not only the produce but the reliability of your delivery and your wonderful weekly emails.
I believe Canadians generally receive poor service from suppliers etc largely because we accept that as the norm. I also believe that when service is excellant, it should be noted!
Thanks again. Because of you, Tuesdays are to be anticipated!
Stuart, family and everyone else who helps...
THANK YOU so much for all your delicious veggies. My daughter and I absolutely love them. We try not to devour them the first day they arrive but sometimes its difficult. I'm so glad to have a) found you online and b) decided to go with the delivery baskets. It's awesome and I recommend it to all my friends. Thank you so much for being the farmers/ producers you (all) are. You're definitely a bright shining light of happiness in me and my daughter's life.

Aha! I'd heard of tomatillos but have never seen one before. Who would have thought it would be in Ottawa and not Mexico or at least one of the southern states? Thanks for the tip about the website recipes -- sounds great!
Tried the corn for dinner this evening. I'm sure you're used to hearing it but I gotta add: it's amazing! I don't recall ever having corn with such deep, juicy kernels -- yum! It is so healing to have real food. Thanks again. I will make a point of coming to see you next time I'm in the Parkdale Market neighbourhood on the weekend.
Wow! When I opened my cooler today to the Bryson Farm's special delivery, I saw this amazing basket of heirloom tomatoes of many hues and sizes. It was like a basket of jewels. Immediately, it was essential to have tomatoes for dinner. But wait. What about the fingerlings? The zucchini in much golden abundance? The corn trimmed to elegant proportions? Such largesse. Thanks. It was a feast for the eyes and the gastronomic expectations.
Remember when you were a little kid on Christmas morning and you couldn't wait to see what Santa had brought? Well, that's how I feel every week waiting with much anticipation to see what Bryson Farms has delivered for the week.
It's always a great rummage through wonderful produce. Luscious colours and aromas and above all, challenges as to how to prepare the produce to maximize its delicious freshness and purity.
Just wanted to let you know that it's a kick having "Christmas" every week. Thanks.
For supper last night, we prepared a wonderful stir fry of all three varieties of carrots, plus pepper strips and baby leeks to serve along with some of your potatoes. Those Russian Blues were a hit as were the small round red ones (Rosara?) and the tan ones (Ptarmigan?).
Thank you for the lovely baskets this summer. It's been wonderful and I have never eaten such flavourful food.
Your corn is the best I have ever eaten!
The black tomatoes are delicious - the best tomatoes I have ever eaten!
I love your garlic - it is the best I have ever eaten!
Your produce is fantastic. We'll definitely be in touch in spring.
Your carrots taste like carrots should taste! I have never eaten such delicious carrots!
Your potatoes are the best I have ever eaten! I love those blue potatoes! More, please!
I used your mixed fingerlings for Thanksgiving dinner and they were a smash!
The Australian Blue Pumpkin was a real treat - I never knew pumpkin could be so good!
My children love your carrots...It is so rewarding to see them eating healthy and loving it!
It is such a treat to get your baskets. Your produce is extraordinary! It makes us cook better and enjoy eating more!
Last week's basket was absolutely exquisite:
The lovely flowers
The delicious watermelon
The wonderful varieties of tomatoes and potatoes and
All of the other goodies which are so tasty!
Thanks for the great service and wonderful food!
The basket this week is just so beautiful! It absolutely made me smile - almost next to tears! Just gorgeous! Thanks a million! And I'm sure we'll enjoy it!
We haven't tasted tomatoes like yours since we were kids....
The thought of cutting off our supply of delicious veggies (this winter) is enough to send me into painful withdrawal.
My son loves those sweet yellow carrots. And I thought he wouldn't eat carrots.............. Please send more!
Those potatoes bring back memories of my childhood...................delicious.
My children love those beautiful cherry tomatoes............they eat them like candy.
