What is Slow Food?


Slow Food links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.

Slow Food (as opposed to “fast food”) highlights the importance of food that is local, seasonal, and fresh.  Slow Food is good for the people who eat it, good for those who grow and harvest it, and good for the land and water.

Our chapter of Slow Food USA promotes the “foodshed” of South Jersey and its abundant harvest from our Farms, the Delaware Bay & the Atlantic Ocean. Within the Slow Food South Jersey Shore chapter, we are all volunteers.

Slow Food is a worldwide movement that is represented by Slow Food USA www.slowfoodusa.org and Slow Food International.

Eat Farm Fresh in 2015 join a CSA!-


For over 25 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer.


Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of "shares" to the public. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a "membership" or a "subscription") and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.

This arrangement creates several rewards for both the farmer and the consumer. In brief:


Advantages for farmers:

  1. Get to spend time marketing the food early in the year, before their 16 hour days in the field begin

  2. Receive payment early in the season, which helps with the farm's cash flow

  3. Have an opportunity to get to know the people who eat the food they grow


Advantages for you:

  1. Eat ultra-fresh food, with all the flavor and vitamin benefits

  2. Get exposed to new vegetables and new ways of cooking

  3. Usually get to visit the farm at least once a season

  4. Find that kids typically favor food from "their" farm – even veggies they've never been known to eat

  5. Develop a relationship with the farmer who grows their food and learn more about how food is grown
