Central Brooklyn CSA member Alisa Bruza is working with a farmer from Raindance Organic Farm near Cooperstown, NY, to start a buying club that would deliver organically, sustainably raised meat and cheese to subscribers in the Crown Heights area. The farm offers:
– aged 1 year raw milk “sun” cheese
– certified organic ground beef, steaks and sausages
– whey-fed, pastured pork
– and more
No minimum order is required, and there are no delivery fees. The next delivery date is this Saturday, October 30. If you or someone you know are interested in placing an order, please contact Alisa and visit Raindance Organic Farm’s website for more info.
This Cilantro Noodle Bowl recipe uses a whopping 2 cups of cilantro so none of your beautiful herbs go to waste. Swap steamed carrots for the Romanesco or broccoli.
Did you know that the combination of lightly sauteed carrots, onions, and celery are known as a mirepoix (said like “meer pwah”)? A mirepoix is the seasoning base for stews, soups, and stocks. It is also the foundation of this delightful French-Style Lentil Salad that packs perfectly for brown bag lunches.
This is a reminder that Wednesday, 27 October 2010 is the last day to order one of our beautiful Central Brooklyn CSA tote bags for the pre-sale price of $12. When you buy a pre-sale bag you not only guarantee your order, you save 20% off the regular price!
These navy-colored cloth totes (design pictured above) are a great way to reduce waste, conveniently carry CSA produce and all the things we buy around town, and show our love for the Central Brooklyn CSA, which serves Bed Stuy, Crowne Heights, and surrounding areas! Best of all, all proceeds from the bags help our CSA offer great food at a great price.
You can bring cash or check to tomorrow’s distribution, or send a check to NYCCAH with “CBCSA Tote Bag” in the memo line (postmarked by the 27th).
After Wednesday, you can still pre-order bags at distribution or through NYCCAH for $15. All tote bags will be available for pick up and purchase at the End of Season Party at Bar Sepia November 7th.
Be well & eat well,
Central Brooklyn CSA Planning Team Member
