"The Sweet Land Winter Sampler is like getting a box of summer in the middle of winter. There's nothing better than seeing that beautiful green kale on a snowy white day and bringing heat into the kitchen with perfectly cured garlic and pungent onions. Getting fresh food is the highlight of my week; it tastes so much better than store-bought vegetables. And the Sampler is the perfect size for our family." - CSA CUSTOMER REVIEW
