Have you ever heard of a CSA? Well, it stands for Community Supported Agriculture. And in my case, this wonderful produce is organically grown at Jacob's Cover Heritage Farm. I purchased a 'share' which entitles me to a fresh box of produce each week. I just head over to the drop location (in my case Allred's Ace Hardward) on Thursday evening and eagerly see what is new for the week.
I took everything out of the box and laid it out on the counter to show you everything that I recieved this week.
Here are some lovely tomatos, and yes there are some light colored varieties. A really yummy snack.
Here is a purple carrot I recieved during a week last year.
Now, I do have a garden as well. But this gives us an opportunity to support a local farm and be exposed to new things. See the white item at the bottom of the box? It is a Pat-a-pan squash.....something that we have never had before.
So, look around your area and see was CSA is available. Here is the contact information for Jacob's Cove Heritage Farm:
