This 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.

We were sold. The ability to choose from a variety of share packages of different sizes and prices has been very helpful, since our food budget took a hit when we made the transition to New York. This year, we chose the ‘Woods Deluxe’ package, which includes a full vegetable share & berry share and one dozen eggs and orchard share bi-weekly .
Berry Share – July 1, 2013
The berry share kicks in at the beginning of the summer. Each week, we receive *buckets* of fresh blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Due to the quantity of fresh berries we end up freezing a lot of them. But whenever we’re in the mood for a smoothie, we are ready to go. (more…)
