Straight from the Farm

10 Oct
Farmer’s Markets are great venues for finding locally grown produce.  The foods are almost always more fresh, nutritious and delicious than larger grocery stores and many times cost less!  Another popular trend is joining a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).  Essentially, you buy a “share” from a local farmer and receive a weekly supply of seasonal produce.  Both farmers and share-holders are subject to risks and benefits of the program.  However, CSA’s are beneficial to the enviornment and allow for a connection between the farmer growing the food and the individuals who are consuming it.  They also allow families an opportunity to introduce new foods and healthy cooking options.
