In Brooklyn we are constantly tempted with the lure of fast foods and deli meats.
The occasional taco stand never goes out of style in the Big Apple. But honestly, little dietary adjustments can affect our whole lives.
And on the topic of eating healthy we should concentrate on the small farms in the tri state area that offer GMO, antibiotic and steroid free groceries.
I came across a chicken farm belonging to the Imani Community Garden on Schenectady Ave and Bergen Street in Crown Heights. The chickens greeted me at the gate, seemingly beckoning me to enter.
The Imani Community Garden sells the eggs from their very own chickens and grows herbs seasonally for their members. Here, Lidia is holding a healthy chicken from the garden.
Recently, one Imani Garden representative, Salome Perry, registered the site as a co-op drop off location. So now you can enjoy the fresh herbs and groceries, not sold in stores. This garden can be found using the Farmigo.com website under Bed Heights Farm 2 U. All items from the farms on this website are locally grown to an impeccable healthy standard.
Happy Eating everyone and remember to keep it Fresh!
