A big part of our CSA is the Community it builds. At New South we strive to foster that community with our farmers, staff, and shareholders by keeping things fun and inventing good reasons to get together. We hosted our first CSA Happy Hour on the 2019 season on May 6th thanks to our team of community partners at Bernice Gardens, The Root Cafe, and Stone's Throw Brewing. Bernice Garden provided the perfect backdrop for our shareholders to mingle. We served our favorite Local Rosemary Lemonade next to Stone's Throws sixtel. Kids filled the air with bubbles and we all filled our bellies with springtime snacks prepared by The Root's Jon Arrington. Lark in the Morning even came out to play! Thank you everyone for coming out to hang out. Join our newsletter and our CSA to received your invite for the next round of events. Check out the photos from the event...

New South is proud to partner with the Arkansas Coalition for Obesity Prevention (ArCOP) to bring Double Up Food Bucks our CSA shareholders in 2019. Double Up Food Bucks is an incentive program the matches the value of SNAP benefits when spent on locally grown fresh fruits and veggies. The Fair Food Network calls the program as a “win/win/win”: “Low-income families bring home more healthy food, area farmers gain new customers and make more money, and more food dollars stay in the local economy. Each has a positive ripple effect of benefits.” So how do you use SNAP and Double Up to sign up for the CSA?

HOW TO STORE BOK CHOY You can store in a plastic bag with a tea towel in the refrigerator, or I also like to store in a sealed glass container with a dry tea towel. In either case, use bok choy within a few days of purchasing. HOW TO COOK BOK CHOY Bok choy can be used in soups, stir fry, grilled, roasted, or left raw. Because the leaves and stalks have such different textures, it can be great for adding layers to a meal: buttery leaves and slightly bitter, crisp stalks. Separate the leaves from the stalks to avoid overcooking the tender greens. Cut an inch from the bottom of the heads, then separate the leaves from the stems and rinse thoroughly. If you’re looking to leave the heads whole, don’t trim, but still wash well. A few notes about cooking: bok choy shouldn’t be overcooked. The crisp texture will give way to an...

CSA or Community Supported Agriculture is something I've heard of for several years now. I had never been actively involved in one before as I hadn't been sure if we even had such a thing. Sure, I had been to my local farmers market countless times, but finding out that I could get my own weekly box of mixed locally grown and seasonal produce has been a total game changer. This takes the term "farm to table" to a new level and I couldn't be more thankful I got started on this CSA journey. I was fortunate enough to come across the amazing team over at New South Cooperative in the Spring of 2018. After messaging back and forth a few times with one of the awesome CSA managers, I was quickly on board to start picking up my very own weekly share! Boy, was I in for an amazing ride...
