May CSA Share from Terra Firma Farm

This month we joined the Terra Firma Farm as a member of their Community Support Agriculture (CSA) program.  Since we have a garden of our own that supplies us with fresh food for most of the summer and even part of the winter, we opted to try the meat share.  We eat a diet that is mostly vegetable-based, in part for health reasons, and in part because we really like vegetables!  Reservations about commercial agricultural practices and the impact on the environment and the health and well-being of the livestock is also a consideration.  At Terra Firma Farm, which is literally 5 miles down the road, the cows, pigs, and chickens are raised in an idyllic setting by Farmer Ethan and Farmer Brie, and many volunteer workers from the community.   It seemed like a great time to support Terra Firma and to add a little meat into our diet.  You can see a photo of the May share below and one that shows what we are currently enjoying from our own garden.
