We’re doing the Chert Hollow Farm CSA this year and are having a good time with it. Great eggs, strawberries and greens so far. My favorite feature of theirs* is the ability to customize what you receive each week by way of an online survey. We’re growing tons of herbs already at the house, so no need for Eric and Joanna to drop more on us – they wouldn’t get used. Instead, I double up on things I don’t grow, like cooking greens and radishes.
We also get the chance to buy raw goat milk through the CSA – for an extra fee. I won’t even touch on the raw milk issue, mostly because I tend to tune out issues that attract
insane people cure-all types as well as ignorant people the chronically over-reactive. I’ve gone for four quarts so far and last night made cheese** with it. More on the cheese-making process later. For now, a picture of lunch, almost entirely supplied by Chert Hollow Farm.
* Second-favorite feature of the Chert Hollow CSA? Home delivery.
** Note: I have not died or, to my knowledge, been cured of anything.
