Many of the farms offer organics as well as add-on products such as artisanal breads,eggs,meat or fish. If you are lucky ,your farm may deliver right to your door, otherwise they arrange a local pick-up spot each week.
This is a great way to ensure you and your family are eating healthy,fresh produce while supporting local farmers. The cost helps pay for seeds,fertilizer,equipment and staff. Still too expensive? Don't worry! Many local farms set up weekly farmer's markets in different towns so families are able to purchase what they need within their price range.
Below is a list of CSA programs available throughout Long Island. Visit their websites and see what works best for you! Enjoy the bounty!

The Sesame Street platter above was a lot of fun to make. This one was for a special little boy's second birthday!
I also had two Communion celebrations!
Communions and garden-themed cookies mean spring is here,even if the weather says otherwise. It will be warming up this week,which means I will be back in the garden.I will be sharing some of my new plants with you soon,as well as some of my progress in the garden. Now I am moving on to another platter.Can't wait to share it with you next time!
Have a sweet day!
