Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a way to support the Slow Food Movement and gain an understanding of where your food comes from AND be able to eat it fresh and in season. Find a farm near you!
We Sisters, subscribe to Abundant Harvest Organics, a California farm-share delivery service (similar to a CSA). They provide a weekly box of healthy, seasonal, organic produce to customers all over California. Their organic produce comes from California organic family farmers and is amazingly FRESH! They also have add-ons such as organic meat (beef, chicken, turkey, fish, pork), organic dairy (including butter, cheese, raw milk and pastured eggs) and nuts, beans and herbs.
This week I am going to pick up heaps of organic apricots, 45 lbs. to be exact. I can’t wait! (15 lbs. for $10) What am I going to do with 45 lbs. of apricots? Well, we will certainly eat many of them fresh, as this is the most nutritious and enjoyable form, as far as I am concerned, and then what ever is left over I will preserve as stewed apricot halves and jam. YUM! I am so excited!
The following week I’m going to try my hand at preserving cherries. (10 lbs. for $26.65)
So, are you drooling yet? Ready to sign up for a CSA? I’m telling you, it’s a fantastic opportunity to support your community, eat seasonal and get phenomenal food for a great price!
