Petoskey doc works with East Jordan farm to provide organic veggies

Join the Summer Community Supported Agriculture Farm Share program and get a weekly or bi-weekly box of your choice of certified organic vegetables and pasture-raised proteins—all locally grown!

 

The office of Dr. Carin Nielsen in Downtown Petoskey is excited to announce a Summer Farm Share membership program in collaboration with Bluestem Farm of East Jordan.

Participants who join the Summer CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Farm Share program will receive a weekly or bi-weekly box of their choice of certified organic vegetables and pasture-raised proteins – all grown locally at Bluestem Farm.

“The concept of ‘Food is Medicine’ is a founding principle of our practice,” states Dr. Nielsen, a board-certified physician who specializes in Integrative and Functional Medicine, “to be able to bring local, organic produce directly to our patients highlights the therapeutic potential of our food choices.

The program will also serve to introduce a variety of phytonutrients into patient’s diets, giving them the opportunity to try produce that they may not have otherwise chosen.”

The program will run 11 weeks, beginning mid-June.  Farm Shares will be available for pickup at the office of Integrative Medicine in Downtown Petoskey on Thursdays 3-6pm. A variety of share options are available, including smaller sizes, bi-weekly options, and more.

Bluestem Farm, owned and operated by Mary and Aaron Brower of East Jordan, is a year-round organic farm that offers build-your-own CSA shares, community events, and food outreach initiatives.
