CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Cooking
As the weather turns warmer, the promise of CSAs are in the air. Community supported agriculture is such a brilliant concept but I have yet to support any local farms by joining a CSA since I garden so much myself. However, this year I noticed that a local farm I love is offering a poultry CSA including local, humanely raised chicken, eggs, and even turkey. This may be my first year of joining a CSA and I’m excited.
[quote]What is a CSA?
CSAs allow you to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce grown locally by regional farmers. CSA members or subscribers pay at the onset of the growing season for a share of the anticipated harvest; once harvesting begins, they receive weekly shares of vegetables and fruit. Often, CSAs also include herbs, honey, eggs, dairy products, and meat, in addition to conventional produce offerings.[/quote]
One of the ways we show case the local Vermont chicken we serve at Green Mountain at Fox Run is in a lemon chive chicken salad, which is always a hit. The recipe is simple and delicious; give it a try. You can also add some diced carrots, peppers and onions and turn it into a great sandwich.
