Sign up now for a Farm Spot CSA share for the 2019 season! 

We are offering an organic vegetable share, from Golden Earthworm Organic Farm in Jamesport, Long Island, and a fruit share (non-organic, but responsibly grown), from Brieremere Farm in Riverhead, Long Island).

The season starts on May 30th and runs until November 21st. (Note: there will NOT be a delivery on Thursday, July 4th due to the holiday, but we will receive the full 25 weeks of deliveries).

All shares must be picked up during distribution on Thursdays, 5:30-8:15pm at St. Mark’s Church, 33-50 82nd St., Jackson Heights, Queens.

As a volunteer-run group, all shares are asked to volunteer 2 shifts (each shift is 1 hour, 45 min) during the season. (If two households split a share, it is still only two volunteer shifts per season)

Chef Tony Liu gave a cooking demo last week during distribution at The Queensboro focusing on winter root vegetables. If you missed it, take a peek at the photos and recipes below.

Golden Earthworm Organic Farm sent us an extra box of winter vegetables, which chef used to make two dishes – both delicious and simple.

The first was Sweet Potato Gnocchi. A very simple dough of baked sweet potato, flour, and eggs was rolled out and cut off into small pieces. These were scored with a fork to create ridges (which catch the sauce), boiled, then pan-fried with butter.

The second dish chef made was Root Vegetable Pakora. For this, a variety of root vegetables (including carrots, golden beets, and leeks) were julienned using a mandolin (though a food processor or a knife can be used instead).

The julienned vegetables were then mixed into a chickpea flour batter before being fried.

Notes:

  • besan, or chickpea flour, is available at Indian grocery shops.
  • in the gnocchi recipe the # sign is shorthand for “pound”, i.e. 3 pounds of sweet potatoes
