Finally found a meat CSA

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

I was able to pick up many good habits during my time at Practically Green (now WeSpire). One of the ones that has stuck is being a member of a vegetable CSA, First Root Farm, here in Concord.

CSA stands for Community-Supported Agriculture, and it’s a great way to know that your vegetables are grown locally, minimize transportation cost, pollution and spoilage, and help keep dollars in your community.

For the past couple of years, I’ve been looking for a meat CSA, and I’ve finally found one: Walden Local Meat.

We got our first drop-off a week ago, and we made the lamb chops on Saturday and the roast chicken on Sunday. We have a couple of more meals to make, but it’s all thumbs-up so far.

I’m looking forward to some great roasts in the winter.

PostScript: It looks like First Root Farm is shutting down. That makes me very sad, though I understand the reasons behind the decision.

If anyone knows of a vegetable CSA around Concord, please let me know…
