Monteverde Sustainability Projects: Finca La Querencia

I am part of a community-supported agriculture (CSA) here in Monteverde that I love!  Finca La Querencia is a diversified, multiple-family farm in the San Luis Valley.  The farmers integrate alternative energy systems into their production of dairy, coffee, and delicious, high-quality organic vegetables.  In addition to the weekly veggie share, I get the whole-grain bread and a tub of coconut yogurt.  They also offer humanely-raised roasting chicken for you carnivores.

Our shares have included gems like basil and cilantro, as well as kale, red lettuce, and other salad greens, and radishes and green beans.  I have used the greens in pesto, taco fillings (sautéed with onions and tomatoes in olive oil), and savory cheesy “brownies”.  The whole wheat bread is delicious as is the yogurt.  My daily breakfast here in Monteverde is the CSA coconut yogurt with a teaspoon of honey from the farmer’s market.

Our veggie share this week included (from left to right): mizuna, dwarf kale, red lettuce, cilantro, and radishes.

The bread and yogurt are such a treat too!

If you live in the Monteverde or Santa Elena area make sure to contact Finca La Querencia through FaceBook to order your veggies, bread, and yogurt.  The prices are very reasonable, and they deliver for a small fee.

Pura Vida!
