Honeybrook Organic Farm

28 06 2010

We were fortunate enough to get a share of Honeybrook’s CSA program this year! Their community supported agriculture program offers consumers a chance to prepay for the growing season (May-Nov), and pick up fresh, local produce once a week at one of their locations. After selling out before we could get in last year, we got the good news early this spring and have been picking up our veggies for almost two months now.

Week 4's haul

The first few months include LOTS of greens. Our individual share (they also offer family sized shares, which is usually double the individual portions) has yielded various types of lettuce, swiss chard, collard greens, kale, dandelion greens, and even more lettuce. Early on we were also able to pick our own strawberries, snap peas, and snow peas. Herbs are plentiful each week.

Week 5's haul

Last week we received SIX heads of broccoli! Luckily the farm offers a box to donate items to Farmers Against Hunger – a wonderful idea. We stuck some of our excess broccoli in there. New this week were onions, cabbage, beets, cucumbers, and basil. The PYO flower fields are starting to bloom and should be ready in a week or two, which my wife Elizabeth is extremely excited about.
