Organic Produce

Our family tries to eat organic when possible. This can be a little challenging in our northern climate. Most supermarkets have a large organic section but the food is expensive and often does not look that great. We belong to a group that buys organic produce from a regional wholesaler every three weeks.

The food gets delivered by a tractor trailer to a friends house. There is a lot of work involved in sorting and weighing the produce, a few families pitch in. The food we get is great as it costs less than the supermarket and it is super fresh. The produce always looks great and it lasts a long time in storage, often several weeks longer than stuff from the store.

The temperatures here are finally above freezing for a few hours in the afternoon so we should have some of our garden bounty in a few months.
