I’ve been following Honest Field Farms (Erin, Ontario) for quite some time, I really enjoy their Instagram stories and watching their farming adventure unfold. Also, being a dog lover, I really appreciate all the hard work Rosie the farm dog does 😉 .
This past week I was lucky enough to get my hands on a large CSA share so I too could experience all of the local deliciousness others get to throughout the growing season! The entire experience was so pleasant – from communication to the beautiful bounty, it was all wonderful. As an added bonus I was able to pick up my share from Harrington Lane Farms in Waterdown, which is always a favourite spot to shop.
This share included familiar items like carrots, cucumber and dill but also kohlrabi which I had zero experience with. This is part of the CSA fun, trying things I would never consider, it forces me to get creative in the kitchen. After some research, I decided to make fritters with them and they were so good! Maybe next time I can convince my children to enjoy them too 😉 .
Honest Field Farms can be found at the Waterdown, Milton and Georgetown Farmers markets if CSAs are not your thing but if you are interested in a CSA program, this is definitely a farm worthy of your support.
