Miami is a little topsy-turvy when it comes to growing season. Just when the rest of the country is settling down for frost to cover the farmlands, we're gearing up for fresh produce at farmers markets, U-Pick tomato patches, and via CSA boxes delivered to our doors.
Teena's Pride (20025 SW 270 Street, Homestead) is one of south Florida's most well known farms. Teena Borek has been farming in Florida for 35 years and, with the help of her son Michael, operates the farm and the CSA program.
On Sunday, November 4, Teena's Pride opens its gates to the public with tours, cooking demonstrations, and a farmers market.
1 to 4 p.m., you're invited to spend the afternoon on the farm where
you'll meet the farmers and be able to see first hand how fresh Florida
produce is grown.
In addition to farm tours, the farm will offer
tastings of their raw vegetables and herbs and continuous cooking
demonstrations, so you'll know just what to do with that heritage
eggplant you received in your CSA box.
Buy produce on site, or
purchase some starter plants and start your own herb garden. You'll
also be able to get information on the Teena's Pride CSA programs, which
is an easy way to start eating locally. Full, half, and quarter shares
are available, and start as low as $40, billed every two weeks.
Children are welcome at the open house and it's a good way to show your kids
that vegetables are not evil creatures sent from another planet
to destroy mankind with their green stalks of death.
