why join the pound ridge organics winter c.s.a.
We all have enough stress and uncertainty in our lives right now without having to worry about where and how to find fresh wholesome authentically local organic food. Pound Ridge Organics is here to help you with a special winter C.S.A. to nourish you from the first day of Winter until the Spring. C.S.A. members will receive a weekly basket filled with meticulously curated, freshly harvested, organic local produce and some very special surprises and gifts. Read more about C.S.A. in general here.
what makes the pound ridge organics winter c.s.a. so special
We're offering an authentic *geo-local winter C.S.A., containing produce exclusively grown in our immediate region. Additionally our produce is freshly harvested, ethically produced, and our farmers are paid a living wage. Each ingredient is filled with texture, color and flavor -- we are talking real food from soil that is rich with life, nutrients and the 'terroir' of our region. We so enjoy coordinating with our local farmers and making these compilations each week. We don't just focus on the quantity and quality of the ingredients, but make sure that our C.S.A. members have an enjoyable experience with each and every basket. And we promise - if we put rutabagas in your basket, we'll also include a recipe card ;)
*Back to that "geo-local" piece. While it would be lovely to receive avocados, oranges, kiwis, strawberries and peaches in your winter C.S.A. basket -- it's just not going to happen here. Our food is strictly local (as in one hundred miles or closer) not from Pennsylvania, Florida or Mexico. We may include some of our private label preserved foods from the summer harvest or some special spices from far away places from Donna's farmer friends... but our C.S.A. produce is strictly local.
