We Have Added a Recipe Page

We have started recording interesting recipes on our web site. You can find the recipes here or just click on the recipes tab at the top of the page. We have purchase an addon for the website WP Recipe Maker by Bootstrapped Ventures. It is a powerful recipe program and we have purchased the upgrade that allows us to add nutritional information and allows our users to scale the recipe by the number of people they are serving.

We hope that you will enjoy the recipes. All of them will be related to vegetables and fruits that are available from our CSA. If you have a recipe that you like send it to us and we will consider adding it.

About GI Acres CSA

GI Acres is located on the western edge of Grand Island, Nebraska. The garden takes up about half of an acre. We also have chickens, rabbits and bees

Our farm is not USDA Certified Organic and we do not anticipate applying for such status. We strive to produce healthy vegetables using natural methods of fertilizing, building soil, and controlling pests such as insects and weeds. Those healthy vegetables will begin in mid to late May with herbs, asparagus, rhubarb and strawberries. During the season you can expect a variety of greens, beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, squash, corn and potatoes along with tips about how to cook and preserve your weekly share. The season will conclude in late September or early October. We aim for a 20-week season.

We did not grow up on farms but we did grow up in families with large gardens, eating a variety of fresh produce and canning/freezing the excess. We have maintained the tradition of growing and preserving food for our family for the past 20+ years. GI Acres is our attempt to share that passion for good food with our community.
