In the Kitchen | CSA Dreaming

With warmer weather on the horizon, I'm anxiously thinking ahead to the warmth of June - it has to warm up, right? - and the warmer weather means this deliciousness will begin:

We've been going the CSA route for a few years now and last year our farmer retired - thankfully, one of our fellow members was kind enough to find another CSA for us. Our new farmers, Nicole & Joe, are pretty fabulous and I have nothing but praise for Good Earth Farm and the amazing produce we get from them each week.

Their new logo is pretty awesome too:

If you haven't tried a CSA and love fresh produce, I highly recommend joining one. The upfront cost can seem like a lot, but over the course of the summer our grocery shopping is pretty minimal since we're not generally purchasing much - if any - produce. I love that our food is grown locally and the quality with our CSA is top-notch. This was another weekly delivery from last summer:

If you're not familiar with the CSA concept, you can read about it here on the Local Harvest website and you can even check for availability in your area. If you're local to the Beaver Dam, WI area, there are still shares available with Good Earth Farm in a variety of sizes, along with some fabulous add-on options including: bread, fruit, mushrooms, and a late season share! As of the beginning of April they are about 80% full, so there aren't many shares left.

Visit this page on the Good Earth Farm website to get details on joining.

They also have a newsletter with recipes and other great information - you can find several years of archived issues here and they're available even if you're not a member.

Do you have questions or a CSA experience to share? Just leave a comment below - I love hearing from you!

Many thanks to Nicole and Joe for everything you and your workers do to provide our family with amazing food each week! We're excited for the 2014 season to kick off!
