Have you heard about Farm Day?
There’s nothing like seeing where it all happens. Especially if you have kids or still consider yourself one. Think about all the food you or your kids eat that’s associated with something – the Cheetos cheetah or the Checker’s jingle, “You gotta eat.” Here’s your big chance to make some associations with CSA food. Meet some farmers along with some goats and chickens. See some stuff growing. I promise it makes the food taste better! Or maybe just more fun. I do think part of my affection for my CSA food comes from knowing some of the farmers and having seen where the stuff gets packed up. It just brings out the C in CSA.
I’m going to be out of town, so I can’t go. I would so love to see all these different farms.
So far, my CSA farm experiences have all been with Nancy and Jacque Garry of Red Hott Tomatoes. Their farm is so cool! (Just search for “Red Hott” to find some posts about my visits.) And Nancy and Jacque have started a new website at http://thegarryfarm.webs.com. Check it out even if you don’t make it to Farm Day.
