Brazos Locavores- May Field Trip Announcement

Local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Long Bean Farm has invited the Brazos Locavores to visit their farm for our May field trip.  In addition to meeting farm owner Vicki Miller and touring the facility, we’ll be getting down and dirty in the rich Texas soil to dig up potatoes (this is definitely a trip to bring the kids).

Located right here in Bryan, Long Bean Farm operates mainly as a CSA (members buy shares in the farm and receive weekly baskets of the farm’s harvest), but is also a vendor at the Brazos Valley Farmers’ Market.

So here’s the scoop:

What: Brazos Locavore Field Trip to Long Bean Farm

When: Sunday, May 17 (1:30PM)

Where: Meet at Brazos Natural Foods to carpool out to the farm

RSVP: to Heather at brazoslocavores@gmail.com by Wednesday, May 13 (this is so that I can prepare the farm for the number of visitors and provide enough maps for drivers.
