While the first Slow Food Harrisburg dinner later this month is almost sold out, there’s a lot you can do to get ready for the local harvest that will start in April.
Here are some links to the good eats:
A Southcentral Pennsylvania Harvest Schedule organized by earliest likely harvest — when to start checking for what foods.
A page on Buying From the Local Farmers with brief descriptions of organic produce and pastured animals at different farms.
If you’d like local produce delivered to a pick-up point near you, consider Community Supported Agriculture. Here’s how it works: you buy a share in a local farm’s produce with money or labor (or both), and get a weekly supply of vegetables. You can also share shares, like splitting one with a neighbor or someone you work with. Here’s a page of links to Central Pennsylvania CSAs.
All of this stuff will stay on a page at the top of this blog. Just click on Slow Food Resources.
