I can’t even begin to describe how excited I was to get our first CSA delivery of the year. (for those of you who have no clue what a CSA is, perhaps you’ll want to read allllll about it and the amazing-ness and great benefits right here). But, in a nut shell it’s basically a local farm-fresh delivery straight from the farm of your choice to your home. Everything is organic, fresh, local and it helps create a more sustainable community! I love it.
We’ve signed up with the same CSA Farm as last year, which we’re really happy about since they produce such great fresh foods. I wanted to help shed more light on these kinds of services so I’ll be doing a weekly update for ya’ll on everything we get in our baskets! You can see the kinds of variety and fresh produce that you’d typically receive and just how much you can get for your dollar when you sign up for a CSA delivery. I’ll also try and post a related recipe I find that looks super tasty to correspond with the ingredients so you can see how many new meals you can cook up!
The owners, Murray-Hill Farms, delivered a huge bag of produce to us for their first one of the year. I have to say: I was very very and very impressed. I’ve already made a huge salad with some of the ingredients and can’t wait to delve into the rest.
Here’s a rundown of what we got:
- Ragged Jack Kale
- Red Russian Kale
- Red Leaf Lettuce
- Green Leaf Lettuce
- Baby Romaine
- Baby Kale
- Green Onion
(Seriously tho.. look at these radish’s! <3 #inlove)
Sounds good? Check out a local farm in your area and inquire about CSA/delivery service. Most farms are heading that way as it’s a great source of regular income and of course it’s an incredible convenience for us as consumers to receive a weeks worth of fresh produce right at our doorstep!
Until next week, have a great weekend!
