There’s been a lot of hype these past few years about farm-to-table fresh food. It’s all the rage with restaurants like Tallulah, TSK and even corporate posts such as Castle Hill Inn. We agree that it’s best to eat local, to support our local farmers and fisheries. Plus, local food always tastes so much better. In the new year, we’re looking forward to joining the Community Supported Agriculture (aka CSA) program at Simmons Farm in Middletown. The CSA Program is a farm share co-op where members purchase a “share” of the seasons harvest with a weekly payoff of eggs, cheese, meat & vegetables. Members take advantage of the freshest organic produce harvested for them that very day. In trade for paying in advance they are given a below retail price for the goods they receive and the farmer benefits by receiving funds to begin the season. It is truly an investment in the farm and the community. With the continual threats of urban development to the small family farm and the increasing globalization of our food source, you can make a difference by making the choice to buy local from a place you know and trust. We welcome you to join us in 2013 as we begin out quest for local food!
