Sources for Eating Locally

Many of our members are interested in supporting nearby farms and the local economy as well as enjoying the benefits of having locally raised food. Here are a few sources:

Sequatchie Cove Farm: This farm is now offering a meat CSA with pick-up in Birmingham at Jones Valley Urban Farm. Sequatchie Cove is a Tennessee-based farm that raises heritage breed pork, grass fed beef, eggs, pick-your-own berries, seasonal vegetables, and they also produce cheese. (They’re hoping to do a cheese CSA. How cool would that be?)

Birdsong Community Farm: This farm offers grass-finished beef, eggs, pasture-raised chickens, fruit and vegetables.

Eat Local Alabama Food Guide: Earlier in 2009 the Foodie Book Club helped Amanda Storey of Food Revival put together some handouts of sources for local food (which were given out during the showing of Food, Inc). Download the handout here.

    • Hello! We’d love to have you join us. We’re meeting on Tuesday, January 12 at 6pm, and we’re reading Cod by Mark Kurlansky. We’re meeting in the clubroom at LivonFifth, 2201 5th Avenue South in Birmingham (it’s a very green building next to Workplay). Hope to see you then! Check back on this blog for updates; we are also on Facebook (Birmingham Foodie Book Club) and on Twitter @foodiebookclub. Also you can email foodiebookclub at mac dot com.
