Week of August 28th

I hope everyone is getting readjusted with new school schedules. My little dude is starting preschool and it’s thrilling and totally nuts all at the same time. A lot of people are pro at this, so excuse me when I say that getting lunches packed instead of rummaging through the fridge can be a little daunting. Hoping that some of these brightly colored veggies catch your kids eyes and mouths during the day.
We are in full swing of summer time here at the farm. 99% of the items we will be picking straight off the farm the night before you receive them. If you have any good recipes that may include meal prep – pass them along my way or tag us on instagram @somethinggoodorganics.

August 14th – Imperfect Produce

Here on the farm we are big advocates of imperfect produce. That still means that you receive produce that has been picked with in 24 hours of receipt. With produce that fresh it will last in your fridge for weeks. Just imagine how long produce sits on shelves in the grocery store, where none of the food is local and has been plastic-wrapped to make it last as long as possible. In my experience a lot of that produce is rotting as you walk out the store door. Big box grocery stores don’t care about local farms like they care about the bottom line. And as a result you pay for the lack of quality. It’s hard to tell what a farm is really doing when they aren’t even located in the USA.

Imperfect produce means oddly-shaped tomatoes or squash, bug bitten leaves and corn with worms to name a few. It means once in a while you will find a critter in your box, although we try our best to avoid it.

All produce from your CSA box will come from soil that has been treated with respect for the future generations which in turn gives a home to insects — whether we like the looks of them or not, they are important parts of the farm ecosystem. And that soil contains beneficial bacteria that is alive and is good for our gut.

Produce you receive in your CSA box means that we’ve reused most of the packaging, or used little to no packaging to get it to you. And when you return your produce box there is almost no packaging used at all.

Buying from our CSA keeps local workers employed and keeps local land out of the hands of developers, enriching it and preserving it for future use with the water that connects us all in a healthy state of being. After all, without farms there would be no food. And supporting imperfect produce prevents waste which might otherwise have been rejected from the grocery store.

Supporting your CSA and local farmers markets keeps local farming alive and supports the natural process of growing food. The way it’s been for generations before the industrial age. And with your support it will be the wave of the future. We promise the highest quality, best tasting, and most nutritious produce there is to offer.
