Harvest – September 2012

Have no fear, there are still memberships available the 2014 Harvest season.
Right now we can pretty much create almost every type of share (within reason). As the CSA fills up there will be less flexibility in the packages offered. Lots of info on the blog about our shares, our packages, our farmers, and our CSA. Don’t forget to check out our great add-ons – Chicken Shares, Meat Shares, Maple Shares, and Beer Club Membership….

Palambino Member Diary for Week of Oct 7th

pic by alyssa palambinoThis is our fourth year with the Southside CSA; each week we pick up vegetables, eggs, a chicken, orchard fruit and berries, plus an armload of maple syrup when we can get it. It’s an ideal system for us – I don’t have to plan ahead or visit Whole Foods, and we’re getting a truly superior product. We used the delivery service from the Cargo Bike Collective for the first time this week, and it really tipped the experience into luxurious territory. If there were CSA Olympics, I think we’d have a gold medal winner on our hands with the Southside CSA.

Because eating in a restaurant with two small kids can be nightmarish, we prepare a simple-but-delicious dinner every night at home (pizza night is the exception, of course). These are some of the dishes we’ve made in the last week with our CSA haul: Continue reading

Jacob-Hurwitz Member Diary for Week #8

pick up
I am a brand new member of the Southside CSA this season! After participating in CSAs in other neighborhoods with my boyfriend, we were delighted to find a CSA close to our new home on the south side. We’ve been picking up a half share of berries, vegetables, and soon fruit and we are also getting chicken. We’ve been making lots of delicious recipes from our haul including strawberry shortcake and salmon with asparagus in parchment.

LEGS Member Diary for Week #6

pic by georgie greville

This is our 5th year with the delicious and lovely Southside CSA- we are a 2 person (soon to be 3) operation and get the Full Monty Deluxe. Now that I am pregnant, I am more grateful than ever to have access to amazing quality eggs, fruit and produce from a such a reliable source. This week we got a dozen huge, healthy eggs and a big handful of fresh asparagus- we are in to asparagus and have had no problem eating it for weeks- they are so great in scrambled eggs, frittatas, salads and soups.

There is a rumor about that we are filled up and have no openings…

Have no fear!  Due to the transient nature of Brooklynites, there is plenty of room in our CSA for new members . However, we do have a set number of shares and individual packages will sell out…
