There is nothing like opening your first farm box of the season and figuring out what you’re going to cook with it.
This summer, we launched a photo series about the beautiful veggies received through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) memberships. We want to see photos of the produce you’ve received in your farm box each week. And they don’t necessarily have to be vegetable CSAs. Send us photos of your grains, milk and fresh eggs, too.
Here’s our second batch of photos, mostly submitted by producers.
Kevin May, of The Farmhouse in Brooklyn, Wisconsin, shared this photo of a flower arrangement sent out along with veggies in a weekly CSA.
From Brooklyn, Wisconsin, we travel to Brooklyn, New York. Avery Robinson shared this photo of this epic CSA share received from Brooklyn Supported Agriculture this season. The Black-led, worker-owned co-op delivers in Brooklyn and Queens.
Kathy Sample, from the Argus Farm Stop in Ann Arbor, Michigan, shared this photo of a curated box of vegetables. This everyday farmers’ market sources its produce from more than 200 farms. In the pictured week, the carrots are from Monroe Family Organics in Elwell, Michigan; the mushrooms are from the Detroit Mushroom Company in South Lyon, Michigan; the daikon radishes are from Tantre Farm in Chelsea, Michigan; the asparagus are from Slow Farm in Ann Arbor; the spinach is from University of Michigan Campus Farm in Ann Arbor; and the mixed salad greens are from Green Things Farm Collective in Ann Arbor.
Emily Rushing, of Lockewood Acres in Vacaville, California, shared this photo of one of the farm’s produce boxes. “At Lockewood Acres, nothing goes to waste. We have paired with Solano County Farmland Trust to provide fresh fruits and vegetables for food banks to help combat hunger in our community,” she says. “In addition, produce we are unable to give away or sell is fed to our livestock or used in our soil for nutrients.”
