A burger or BLT was never so good as with just-picked lettuce and vine-ripe heirloom tomato. Caprese Salad and Balsamic Bruschetta verge on the sublime with quality ingredients.Venture beyond with new summer combinations (BLT w/arugula/chicory) and traditions-to-be like Baba Ganoush, Sun-dried Tomato Pesto w/Green Beans & Feta, or Corn Tomato & Basil Chowder.

 

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has been evolving over several years, and today there are as many variations to a CSA as there are growers.

Members’ locations will guide the selection of drop off sites. Another option is prearranged farm pick up, but you risk being put to work…

 

I’ve been involved in the food industry for 40 plus years with many of those in industrial food process engineering and as a counterpoint to that experience have a strong interest in real food , diet, and nutrition- so will be sharing information on those subjects.
