Several times I've joined one of the local Community Supported Agriculture programs (or CSA) where once a week you would pick up a bushel of locally grown vegetables. I really liked it, but would sometimes let being busy get in the way of cooking the food and end up throwing things away and ended up quitting (all the okra and eggplant this summer was insane). Then through working on Local ( http://vimeo.com/32845880 ) and meeting some of the farmers that grow locally and chefs that source their ingredients locally, plus wanting to do my best eat healthier, I decided to give it another go. So I signed up for Farmhouse Delivery (http://www.farmhousedelivery.com/). Several people I know have used this service with good results, so I'm excited to get my first delivery on Tuesday. The nice thing about Farmhouse is that they deliver the vegetables (and other kitchen items) to your house. This takes having to go to the Supermaket out of the equation, which is something I always dread.
So I placed an order for a bushel of veggies, and added on a chicken, some eggs, and Cuvee coffee (too bad the Holy Roast blend isn't available through Farmhouse). I mentioned this to a coworker, who mentioned it to someone else, and now people are asking me about it in the hallway (well, one person did). So I figured I can document what I get and how I use it here for people that might be interested in what Farmhouse Delivery has to offer.
