Field Trip to MimoMex Farm. Oct 24, 2010

 

Southside CSA gathers at MimoMex Farm

On one of the last weekends in October we rallied to Goshen, NY to check out MimoMex Farm and hang with Martin, Gaudencia, & the whole Rodriguez clan. One of the best reasons to be in a CSA is this direct relationship you can have with the land that produces the food that nourishes your body. Seeing the farm and digging in the dirt always heightens that connection…

Good times in the mega-van!

It was a nice, crisp Fall day out in Black Dirt country. About 50 of us gathered at the farm for a day in the country touring MimoMex Farm. We started the day with fresh pressed apple cider and apple pie. After knoshing, we checked out all the MimoMex fowl and then had a giant potluck lunch. Gaudencia rocked the kitchen, serving up tamales, beans, and guacamole that rocked the house. The rest of us brought some tasty treats made from our MimoMex shares. The result of which was a seriously yummy feast! After munching, we went out to the fields and harvested potatoes, carrots, and lemongrass.

We had such an amazing day at the farm! Big thanks to Tracy and Jackie for organizing the trip, Gaudencia for making us such a delicious spread of food, the Rodriguez kids for being such fun hosts, and Martin for spending the day showing us around. We are so grateful to be partnered with such a fabulous farm!
