2014 Season Starts Tomorrow!

We are busy as beavers (or maybe even farmers) getting ready for the start of our 2014 season. We are making our lists, checking them twice, finishing up creating our season calendars, and dragging out all the scales and supplies from the closet.

We look forward to seeing all our Greig Farm Berry Share, Yellow Belle Egg & Chicken Share, and Northwind Farm Meat Share members. (vegetable and orchard shares start in June)

Have no fear, if you are interested in signing up, there is still time. From here on out our CSA sign ups will take place during our Monday distributions. Swing by the Woods, have a drink, and sign on up for a season of local fruit and vegetables.

Southside CSA distribution takes place every Monday at the Woods (48 S4th) from 630-830pm.

Novack Member Diary Week #12

pic by Kate Novack

This is our first year doing a CSA. I’d been wanting to join one for a long time and I guess the thing that finally got me to Ryan’s apartment to sign up was a longing to attach some kind of ritual to our ‘grocery shopping,’ ideally one that didn’t involve icy air conditioning or free delivery. Honestly, I was a little afraid my kids (4 and 5) were starting to think food grew in Fresh Direct trucks. We started small, with the Berry and Orchard shares. At the first distribution, we picked up only about eight spears of asparagus. But with good olive oil, some sea salt and about ten minutes in the oven they were delicious. And in a way, starting lean only reinforced the idea that it takes work (or, in our case, a three-block walk) to make food. This week, there was more to tote home. The NY Orchard Share was one box each of raspberries and cherries. The raspberries were especially beautiful, separated into small green boxes that were nestled together in a larger white box. They reminded me of puppies in a litter. How could you possibly pick one?
