Becoming a Locavore

In order to become a locavore a person needs to find sources for local organic food.  So the goal has to be to meet farmers or find a CSA.  So here I am wondering how in the world I was going to do this.  I had searched the internet for local CSA’a and farmers and had come up with nothing.  Then I get an email from someone who reads my blog, thanks Deb, that the neighboring town has an eat local group.  Hooray!  Every second Tuesday of the month some area businesses are sponsoring a film series, “Growing Local: The Naked Truth About Your Food”.  So it seems I will have more info soon.

    Hi Char,

    Thanks for visiting my uncanny sight and good luck with your CSA search. I’m sure you’ll find other like-minded people in search of good, local food.

    I look forward to checking out your sight. I’m beyond jealous that you’re in a cozy and balmy 8b! We’re at a 5a and really struggle with such a short growing season.

    Participating in a CSA is a wonderful idea.

    I did not recognize the word locavore. I learned something new today.

  4. Just before I left for AZ last fall, I found a local source for free range chicken eggs. I contacted her to ask if she would be willing to sell to me when I return, and she said she would. I hope she’s still willing, or has enough to sell, when I get home.

    My second wish is to find someone who will sell me half of a locally raised beef. That should be pretty easy, but probably pretty pricey, too. With local beef and eggs, along with all I grow and preserve, it should cut down the trips to the grocery store by quite a bit.

    Char,

    We did a CSA two years ago. It was pretty good ours was actually three CSAs, veggies, cheese/eggs and meat. Turned out we got too much stuff we did not care for like fennel and our garden stuff was repeating the CSA produce. This past year we got on a e mail list from an organic garden about 1/2 mile from here and picked up what we wanted along with what we grow we did very well. A weekly visit to the local farmers market also helped. Would love to be a locavore, we basically are during the summer.

  6. We were still growing our own veggies when we were in our CSA! I was overwhelmed! And I was splitting an order with another couple! It was a lot of food! We had to quit because it was too much. It is a very good experience though! Go Steelers!
