As most of you know, I have teamed up with Roots and Shoots Farm for this season’s CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Throughout the season, I will post updates about what we receive, recipe suggestions, and tips and tricks to get the most out of your CSA. To find a CSA in your area, simply search the Internet for “CSA” + your city.
We are less than a week from our first CSA delivery and we are so excited. The weather is beautiful and the crops are growing like gang-busters.
Today, the good folks at Roots and Shoots Farm invited CSA subscribers to tour the farm and learn more about what they are growing and how they do it.
Even though I subscribed last year, we did not take a tour of the farm. I am so glad that I decided to go this year. Robin, Jess, and the gang were such amazing hosts. They showed us everything they were working on and gave us a sneak peak at what they are growing.
It was really nice to be able to meet face to face with the actual farmers to ask questions and really understand where our food is coming from.
As the weeks go by, I will be posting “unboxing” videos to show exactly what we get in each share. I can’t wait to get started.
While we were touring the farm, I took some pictures and video so we can all have a look inside the farm. Click the images to see larger versions.
Do you subscribe to a CSA? We would love to hear about it.
