Today was the first day for our CSA pick-up. For those of you who don't know CSA stands for community-supported agriculture. Basically, you buy a share of a farm and during the spring/summer/fall months you receive a portion of the farm's production each week. You can read more about it here. We chose a farm new to CSA called 2silos. We chose them, because they are a chicken farm that has a garden on the side, so each week we will get organic eggs along with other produce. They have other programs like "Meet Your Meat" where you choose and help slaughter your chicken to take home and eat, which sounds like a real mess to me, but also educational and perhaps a little fun. This week, because it's relatively early in the season we got a hodge-podge of things: a dozen eggs, garlic, goats milk soap, pesto cheese (not pictured), garlic, sage, spinach, and pickles. I'm excited to see what surprises we will receive each week. Check out Local Harvest to find a CSA farm near you.
Here's our eggs. Aren't they the most beautiful eggs ever? I love the green ones and the light brown eggs that are speckled brown. Almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
