Kids Don't Have to Share Their Vegetables, Thanks to Siena Farms, ChopChop Magazine & Chef Ana Sortun
Date:8/28/2014

Watertown, MA (PRWEB) August 28, 2014

Siena Farms, in partnership with ChopChop Kids, Inc., is delighted to present its new Kids’ Share, which is designed for children ages 6-12. The Siena Farms Kids’ Share will encourage kids (and their parents) to get into the kitchen, have some fun, and cook real food from their very own vegetable share. Each week the Kids’ Share will be themed and recipe-focused. In addition to the farm’s fabulous veggies, shares will include activities for kids, recipes from ChopChop Magazine: The Fun Cooking Magazine for Kids, games, and food-related tools and accessories. Kids will also receive a year’s subscription to ChopChop Magazine and a copy of the award-winning ChopChop cookbook.

CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Farm-Shares are an easy way to support local agriculture by investing in a farm. The return is a ‘share’ in what the farm produces. At Siena Farms, families purchase a membership up-front. Then each week during the season, they receive a box/share filled with the farm’s own, super-fresh vegetables (grown using only sustainable, organic-farming methods).The Kids’ Share is a great way to get kids excited about healthy eating, and to teach them where their food comes from.

Farmer Chris Kurth, owner of Siena Farms (and Siena’s dad), shared the impetus for the innovative program. “Getting kids cooking is one of the best-possible, all-around, real-world learning labs. Cooking builds confidence and creativity, uses and develops reading, processing, logic, math, and art skills. Kids learn the timeless pleasure of making food for and sharing it with others. We feel so lucky to have the opportunity to work with my wife Ana, Sally Sampson, and the ChopChop team to bring the Siena Farms’ Kids’ Share from a great idea into delicious fruition.”

Sally Sampson, the founder of ChopChopKids, is an award-winning cookbook author and a national leader in children’s education about food and healthy eating. Sally has seen picky eaters become more open and adventuresome when they are engaged with making food themselves. “We are thrilled to partner with Siena Farms in launching this Kids’ Share and excited to share ChopChop recipes, all of which will be chosen for what’s in the share and written specifically for kids. The Kids’ Share is a terrific way for children to have ownership of the cooking process and we know that ownership breeds better eating.”

Ana Sortun, award-winning chef/partner of the Oleana Restaurant Group (and Siena’s mom), shared her enthusiasm about the new Kids’ Share: “Kids will love having their very own vegetables from our farm! I hope we can inspire some early chopping, peeling, sprigging, washing — and even some cooking — with fun recipes and surprises each week.” When 8-year old Siena Kurth heard about the Kids’ Share, she told her parents that she knew her friends would enjoy it, and encouraged her dad to launch the program by drawing its playful logo.

The 2014 Siena Farms Kids’ Share costs $250 for 12 weeks (the week of September 1st through the week of November 17th). Members can choose one of the farm’s many convenient pickup locations/days in the Greater Boston area — please check the farm’s website for details. For an additional, nominal fee, the Kids’ Share is available for home or office delivery! Registration is available now online.
