Yesterday I headed out to Bushwick, Brooklyn to appear on a segment of Heritage Radio and talk about our CSA collaboration with Farmigo. Heritage Radio Network was founded in 2009 by Patrick Martins, founder of Slow Food USA and of Heritage Foods USA. It is an independent internet radio station that broadcasts from a studio made from two repurposed shipping containers in the back garden of Roberta’s, an amazing and innovative pizza place that has become a hub of the Brooklyn food scene. There is an organic garden on the roof of the containers and Roberta’s also receives pasture-raised pork from Heritage Foods in exchange for use of their space. The different shows explore all sorts of aspects of indie food, drink, and agriculture.
I was on the show Tech Bites, hosted by Jennifer Leuzzi. The show explores the intersection of technology and food, and how technology is transforming our culinary culture. It was the perfect place to talk about Farmigo and the PRINT. CSA.
I was on the show with Ludovica Ferme, Regional Manager at Farmigo. Ludo explained how Farmigo began a software that farmers used to manage their individual CSAs, and developed to incorporate an e-commerce community that supports our shared goals of eating well and supporting small farmers. I talked about our community development projects and how Farmigo fits into that and how we work with many of the same farmers and purveyors as Farmigo when we source for the restaurant, which is another reason our missions align. You can listen to the podcast here.
This week there are some delicious options available for order from Farmigo for pickup next Wednesday at PRINT. including mache, kabocha squash, tuscan kale, and local potato chips! Check out the full selection and remember to get your order in by midnight on Sunday.
