CARROLL GARDENS — From local farms to doorstep, a Community Supported Agriculture program is bringing Brooklyn families all the ingredients needed to prepare this year's Thanksgiving feast.
For the second year running, a CSA based in Carroll Gardens, Local Roots, has curated a selection of Thanksgiving products for families to order, based on common Thanksgiving recipes like stuffing and parsnip, said Wen Jay Ying, founding director of Local Roots.
Even the portions are based on recipe measurements, she said.
“I think it’s more convenient to be able to order everything at one time,” said Ying. “You don’t have to wait in a hectic line a day before Thanksgiving.”
The CSA offers everything a family might need to complete the ultimate Thanksgiving feast, including the turkey, sweet potatoes, apple cider, honey and cheese. Locally produced caramel popcorn and chocolate chip cookies are also available to order.
All of the produce is sourced from farms based in New York state, the turkeys are from a farm in New Jersey, and all the baked goods and the hot honey are produced in Brooklyn, Ying said.
The turkeys comes in a variety of sizes — a half order is about 14 pounds, and a full-order bird ranges from 15 to 25 pounds.
The deadline for all Thanksgiving orders is Oct. 26, and deliveries will be made the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Orders can also be picked up at 61 Local in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain in Cobble Hill, among other spots in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
“Thanksgiving is such a special time, to spend with family and friends,” said Ying. “Making a locally sourced meal would be special.”
