Local. Fresh. Delivered.

I think about food. A lot. If our home were a government bureaucracy, Mama would be the "Minister of Gastronomical Intelligence & Immunological Defense." Which certainly gives appropriate meaning to the days when nourishing each of us 3-4x is all I can accomplish. While the boys are young, it is my self-appointed full time job to research, source, prepare & enforce the consumption of organic, whole foods. Unprofessionally. Haphazardly. Not an "urban homestead" by a long-shot.

Part of my aim in writing here is to share the knowledge/resources that help me work smarter. Farmer's markets require more time/money than we have accessible. We want the flexibility of a weekly/monthly food budget rather than putting down cash at the beginning of each growing season. So I'm a local food buddy for our CSA, Horse & Buggy Produce. There are several sizes of produce shares, you can add A La Carte items or additional shares (meat, cheese, eggs, etc) online & they're added to your box each week. For extra flexibility, you can put your share on hold while out of town & can cancel anytime with no penalty.

If anyone who lives or works East End/Downtown RVA wants to join our drop site, please feel free to sign up online, choose a share size & put my name in the notes section so they'll know to switch your pickup location when it's all official next week. Because the boys are still small, we make do with a "Basic Weekly" share & will also begin a weekly fruit share in July. Delivery day is Wednesday (by 4pm.) I'm excited to support both local agriculture & our beloved community's health!
