Beneficial Farms CSA Opens New Distribution Site at The Commons on the Alameda
Beneficial Farms CSA is now distributing fresh local food at The Commons on the Alameda, 2300 West Alameda in Santa Fe on Thursdays from 3-5 pm. This location adds to the Santa Fe Complex, Kitchen Angels, Santa Fe Prep and La Tienda in Eldorado as a Santa Fe pickup site for New Mexico’s oldest Community Supported Agriculture program.
Farm Shares are $25 per week; additional egg shares, cheese shares and ground beef shares are also available weekly for an extra charge. All participating farms grow without chemicals using sustainable methods.
People can join any time of the year; Beneficial is a year-round CSA with an online Marketplace where members can order local honey, peanut butter, jam, a variety of artisanal cheeses and more. The website features a blog with recipes and cooking tips.
Our website at http://www.beneficialfarm.com has each week’s share history posted; winter shares are high value and quite creative as actual green growing things are limited; sunflower sprouts from Santa Fe and salad mix from Albuquerque are featured though!
Beneficial Farms CSA works throughout the year with 40 regional farms which accounts for the wide variety of produce members receive and also the presence of fruit in every share.
This week’s share is red chile powder from Seco Spice in Bernal, NM; frozen figs and dried apricots from Shiraz Vineyard in La Luz, NM; carrots from Gemini Farm in Las Trampas, NM; pecans from Del Valle Pecans in La Mesilla, NM; roasted blue corn atole from Tamaya (Santa Anna Pueblo); and peanut butter from Sunland COOP, Portales, NM.
