The Farm Spot Core Team
The farm truck arrived about 10 minutes ago! Neil, the driver, said he encountered long lines at gas stations that spilled into the streets causing MASSIVE gridlock!
Again, we apologize for the lateness.
Please make every effort to come pick up your veggies – we have no way to store large amounts of leftovers. You can ask anyone to come pick up – a friend, neighbor, family member, etc.
We will plan to stay until 9pm tonight – and a little later if it seems people are still making their way here. If you need to check in with us, please call Angel at 347-731-7110.
Thanks for your patience!
Farm Spot just got word the the Golden Earthworm truck is stuck in gridlock traffic-the driver estimates he’ll arrive after 7. We will make every effort to stay late to allow extra time for people to pick up tonight. In the meantime Lewis Waite and Milk Not Jails are there for pickup. Please enter through the school doors on 82nd Street as the yard is closed.
We sincerely apologize and will update with more information as soon as we get word.
The Golden Earthworm Organic Farm is hosting a fundraiser, SHARE: A Field to Plate dinner, on August 12th from 4-7pm. There will be a farm tour, live music and an auction. Tickets are $175 and will benefit North Fork Education Initiative, an amazing new organization that creates educational programs with a focus on arts and the environment on the East End. They will be launching a K-3 school, Peconic Community School, in downtown Riverhead this fall. Please join us for an enchanting evening featuring our delicious organic produce prepared by top local chefs, Shinn Vineyard wines and artisanal products from local producers. It’s going to be an evening to remember! TICKETS now available for online purchase here. This is an intimate gathering, so seating is limited!
HERE’S a dirty little secret of summer.
What should be a beautiful and inspiring sight — your kitchen, overflowing with seasonal produce — is sometimes an intimidating tableau of anxiety. The knobbly piles and dirt-caked bunches are overwhelming. Already the peak-ripe multicolored peppers are developing soft spots; the chard is wilting and the race is on.
“People often feel overwhelmed in the kitchen, and when all this produce suddenly arrives, they panic,” said Ronna Welsh, a chef in Brooklyn who teaches workshops on, among other topics, produce management.
Vegetable anxiety can strike anyone at this time of year: C.S.A. subscribers, compulsive farm-stand stoppers and even vegetarians. “All this produce arrives with a deadline,” said Benjamin Elwood, a lawyer in St. Paul. “It’s like when a DVD comes from Netflix. You feel like you have to watch the movie ASAP in order to get your money’s worth, but the pressure makes you not want to watch it.”
An interesting editorial from the New York Times on the roll of dirt from fresh produce in our diets:
Dirtying Up Our Diets
By JEFF D. LEACH
OVER 7,000 strong and growing, community farmers’ markets are being heralded as a panacea for what ails our sick nation. The smell of fresh, earthy goodness is the reason environmentalists approve of them, locavores can’t live without them, and the first lady has hitched her vegetable cart crusade to them. As health-giving as those bundles of mouthwatering leafy greens and crates of plump tomatoes are, the greatest social contribution of the farmers’ market may be its role as a delivery vehicle for putting dirt back into the American diet and in the process, reacquainting the human immune system with some “old friends.”
Increasing evidence suggests that the alarming rise in allergic and autoimmune disorders during the past few decades is at least partly attributable to our lack of exposure to microorganisms that once covered our food and us.
