It’s no secret that I love supporting local agriculture and businesses. Being a former small business owner, I understand how important it is to have the support of your community. So, when the opportunity came up to work with new farm Loam Agronomics, I obviously jumped at the chance! Loam is about 30 miles from my house (I know because I drove there to see the operation in all its glory). They are a sustainable operation in the process of obtaining organic certification. And, they not only care about the veggies they grow, but the soil they grow them in! I love how transparent they are with sharing information about the farm and practices and can’t wait to see how they grow.
I’ll be working with Loam in the coming weeks to create recipes for their CSA members to inspire them to cook with what’s in the share that week. If you are interested in learning more about Loam, or perhaps purchasing a share (it’s only $30 per week!) head here. Shares for the public will be ready to go out beginning in late March. I’ve already had the privilege of receiving one so I can personally attest to the quality and beauty of the goods. In fact, you can see some of what was in my share along with the farm in the photos in this post.
