Tennessee Department of Agriculture

Tennessee Department of AgricultureNashville, TN – A stranger is just a friend you haven’t yet met, the saying goes. The same is true for the unfamiliar vegetables that will be showing up at farmers markets and in community supported agriculture (CSA) boxes this summer.

As the national movement toward eating more fresh and local produce grows, so does the need for more variety. Other, less nutritive foods are tempting if you grow bored with a limited roster of vegetables and recipes.

Many vegetables that are unfamiliar at farmers markets are actually items we already enjoy at restaurants.

Tennessee Department of Agriculture says the Freshest Gift of All? A Whole Year of Local Foods

 

The Tennessee Department of AgricultureNashville, TN – A gift certificate from a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm can provide a year of fresh produce and other local foods. The person or family who receives fresh foods and a local farmer will benefit from a delicious, health-minded gift that meets a need and will be appreciated all through the year.

In a CSA, a farmer contracts with people in the community to provide them with a portion of the year’s harvest. Customers pay the farmer in advance, before the produce season begins, which allows the farmer to buy seed, fertilizer, fuel and other inputs necessary to farm for the year.
