Farm Share is offering a special offer for Edible Brooklyn readers: The first 10 to sign up will get $40 off a organic CSA share that comes with Brooklyn home delivery.
Next door to the Piggery, up in the Finger Lakes, there’s a vegetable farm called Sweet Land that’s been running a CSA through the winter for five years. Shareholders come by their enclosed barn farm-stand in Trumansburg to warm up and pick up carrots, garlic, turnips, squash, potatoes, onions and winter greens every other week. This year, they’re coming to Brooklyn too, at a new locavore-leaning restaurant called Cornerstone at 271 Adelphi, Fort Greene.
This Saturday night bk farmyards hosts a $40 fundraiser dinner: It will be local produce prepared by a slew of local restaurants right in the Kingston Avenue fields where it was grown by Brooklyn students with help from bk farmyards. Best yet: You can take the subway!
In case you missed last week’s Edible segment about on NY1, we just wanted to give you yet another peek of the fields at Fox Trot Farmyards, a 450-square-foot real, working farm–meaning people pay for its produce–run by bk farmyards smack in the back of a South Brooklyn backyard.
