Hola San Pancho Amigos!
As you all know, the jungle girl loves her greens and veggies. With this in mind, I’m thrilled to introduce you to Britta Jankay and her new organic farm in San Pancho, “Ranchito Del Mar”. When I visited Britta’s fantastic ranchito last week I felt like a kid in a candy store! The garden is heaven (see photos attached). Beautiful rows of organic veggies are ready and waiting for your holiday feasts. Not only are these veggies incredibly tasty (and packed with valuable nutrition!), they’re also a lovely 10 minute walk from San Pancho. AND, Britta has decided to start up San Pancho’s first CSA (community supported agriculture). Please spread the word to your friends!
Here’s the scoop:
Wednesday Dec. 18th, between 9 – 11 am
Come and visit the garden on Wednesdays. Pick up your CSA basket. Or pick you own veggies!
If you’re a veggie lover like me, you’ll be thrilled to hear that for only 100 pesos you can get a beautiful basket of fresh veggies from Ranchito Del Mar each week. Baskets include a selection of the veggies below. You can pick up your basket of veggies each week on Wednesday between 9 – 11 am. Can’t make it to the garden? Britta will deliver your veggies to your doorstep on Wednesday between 11 am – noon (50 peso additional fee).
Ranchito del mar offers more than 15 varieties of fresh , local, organic vegetables. Vegetables available for the weekly basket:
- Red and green lettuce mix
- Red and green mustard greens
- Baby cucumber
- Green beans
- Colorful radishes
- And a surprise…
Coming soon (within a month): eggplant, sweet corn, pacchoi, tatsoi, kale, sweet peas, cherry tomatoes.
*Sign up for the Ranchito Del Mar newsletter and get free recipes and ideas for how to prepare your beautiful veggies.
Garden is located on the road to the new polo field. It’s very easy to find, simply follow the dirt road from the hospital, wind around behind the golf course and take a right onto a dirt road that heads out to the polo field. Within a half mile you’ll see the garden on your left, just look for the veggies! If you get lost, call Britta at 322 229 0150.
The CSA Concept
Community supported agriculture is a way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. When you become a member of the CSA you’ll be buying a share (veggies) of the garden and supporting the garden as it flourishes. Ranchito del Mar is such a wonderful addition to the San Pancho community. Bring on the organic veggies!
Happy holidays to you all and I hope to see you at the garden on Wednesday!
