Happy New Year—Trends and Resolutions

Happy 2012. Trends and resolutions seem to be all the rage this time of year, so I thought I would share some of my favorite articles so far. It actually is very exciting to see the popularity of ideas like “farm-to-table” and “artisanal,” or to read that almost all the hot new diets still encourage the increased consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.

In honor of the new year and these encouraging trends, I am going to extend the early bird CSA discount until the end of January.  A 2012 CSA Share will cost $550 as opposed to $600 if you sign up before January, 31st 2012 . Go to the Inverbrook Farm website "news and information" page to download a sign up form. Whether you want to be trendy or stick to your diet resolutions, supporting local agriculture seems to be the way to go. Buy Fresh, Buy Local.
And finally the Philly Inquirer’s wrap up of food critic Craig LeBan’s year in bells (his rating system) with a nice shout out to our local farm-to-table hero Aimee Olexy of Talula’s Table and Garden.   Cheers to Aimee and the continuation of the local farm-to-table trend!
