There is SO much I love about my hometown, Eugene, Oregon, but one of the things I love most is the quality of the food. We get two deliveries of CSA vegetables per week (Turnip the Beet and Wintergreen Farm — my parents have been members of both farms for over 20 years!!!) as well as fresh chickens and eggs from Havurah Farms every other week. You literally don’t have to go to the grocery store except for pantry and freezer items. And the chickens?!?!?! MAN they are good. Who knew chickens could taste THAT good. They come from Havurah Farms and are pasture raised and non-gmo fed. Also, kosher, organic and killed young. You can literally taste the difference.
So I know most of you don’t live in the paradise on earth of Eugene, Oregon, and don’t have access to this particular farm, but I wanted to bring awareness that programs such as this CSA DO exist and you just have to seek it out. Fresh chickens make a world of difference! And here is a recipe for a fun dish we made a few years ago: Beer Can Chicken.
