Our first 2016 Winter CSA scheduled pickup was on November 15 at the Burnsville Health and Nutrition Store. All our subscribers loved their boxes. The various farmers were on hand to meet and greet CSA members and offer some delicious appetizers that featured recipes using items from the CSA boxes.
The boxes contained free range, non-soy and non-GMO eggs, microgreens, a mix of purple top and white salad turnips with greens, collards, salad mix, butternut squash and the Thai Red Chili peppers and sage needed to make Sandie’s delicious Butternut Squash Tart. Members who signed up for some of the add-on selections received a gourmet mushroom sampler that contained Lion’s Mane, Phoenix Oyster and King’s Trumpet mushrooms. Other add-on options included frozen hens and rabbits from Serendipity Farm and selections of pork from Hall’s Hill Farm.
With multiple pickup locations available, several CSA members opted to pick up their boxes at Hall Young’s store in Minneapolis, NC.
