Favorite Thing: Hen House CSA Program
Do you participate in the Hen House CSA Program? If not, is a fantastic way to support local farmer's and get great local produce each week. All of my recipes from this summer (cucumber salad, caprese orzo salad), include ingredients from this program.
We have been participating in it for the last two years. We pick-up our goods on Saturday and are excited to have fun ingredients all week. The first year we participated, we didn't know what to do with the food. This year, I have been better about meal planning and freezing items for future use. Plus, it always makes me change up recipes and try new things.
The best is checking to see what we are going to get that weekend! I am excited for this Saturday's bag: Good Natured Family Farms Fresh Ground Round, Farm to Market 100% Whole Wheat Bread, Candy Onions, Watermelon, Tomatoes, Bell Peppers and Sweet Hot Dill Pickles. All for $25!
Look into it next year to help support local farmers!
