Last Friday evening our family participated in the Community CROPS annual Farm Walk event. It's a catered all you can eat soup supper from The Cup, fresh bread and home-made basil ice cream for dessert. There are tours, potato sack races, raffles & plenty of watermelon to go around. The reason is to get lots of people out to the farm to see how CROPS actually functions, to enjoy some wonderful local food, and to "meet & greet" other CSA members and the farmers themselves.
Our whole family went and we had a great time. The vegan "African Peanut Soup" was fan.tas.tic. Although it was a bit misty during the evening, that didn't stop the 100+ people coming out to see what CROPS is all about. If you're new to Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) you can read a bit about it from a post I did awhile back. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in gaining a variety of fruits + vegetables in their diets (and being forced to use them up everyweek!), learning to use different foods you wouldn't normally see at the grocery store, and engaging with your community's economy & overall health.Here are Lukka and Anikka sitting with other children & the family friendly musician of the night. I wish I knew who he! His songs were entertaining to adults, too, and every child got a small instrument to play with! We had a great time, and I'd love to go next year.
