As most of you know, J Banks is passionate about being environmentally responsible – whether designing, doing business, building or living, the choices we make are determined by how they affect our environment and community.
This life approach also encompasses what cars we drive, what clothes we wear and even (our favorite) what we eat – which is why J Banks is very excited to be a “drop spot” for local Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). When becoming a member of a CSA you purchase in advance a “share” of the crop from a local farm, helping them pay the expenses of growing & harvesting for the season. This upfront investment pays dividends in freshly picked, packaged and delivered produce each week!
Our CSA is grown & delivered by Gruber farms out of St. George, South Carolina and we can attest from our experience with the harvest last fall as well as this past spring; their farm produces top quality fruits and vegetables. Our boxes of vegetables varied each week but would include five or six selections that ranged from green beans, squash, zucchini, potatoes, corn on the cob and butter beans to okra, melon, radishes, beets, cucumbers, tomatoes and grapes! The most fun part was channeling our creativity into the kitchen as we experimented with new recipes, combined flavors and attempted new cooking techniques. (we all know that culinary expertise is just another form of great design!)
Get your grill fired up and jump on board – the fall delivery will begin September 7th & will continue weekly for 11 weeks. Delivery takes place right here at the J Banks building on Main Street, so it couldn’t be easier to stop in and pick up your box filled with the fresh local harvest!
