Welcome to the online home of FoodCyclist Farm!
First Chicken CSA pick-up is Friday June 7th from 4-7pm at White Silo Winery on Route 37 in Sherman, CT. CSA pick-ups will be every Friday after that until late October.
Not in the CSA but still want a chicken? Contact me ahead of time to see if I have enough or join the e-mail (form on right) list to get chicken notifications. CSA members always have first dibs on chicken.
FoodCyclist Farm is your farm in Connecticut, and online. At the brick and mortar site we offer pasture-raised chickens and herbs. Online we have the farm blog, farm podcast, and other helpful information.
About John Suscovich:
In 2010, I became engrossed with finding a closer connection to where my food comes from. During my time off from work in New York City, I would ride my bicycle to farms in a 350 mile radius. I would volunteer at these farms, interview the farmers, and photograph the various operations.
By 2011, my wife, Kate, and I felt so strongly that we needed a more in-depth look into American agriculture that we left our life behind in New York to pedal our bicycles 5,500 miles from New York City to Seattle to San Diego. Along the way, we stopped stayed on family farms across the country.
When 2012 rolled around, we wanted to bring our farming life to the next level. We applied for an apprenticeship position at a 200 member organic vegetable CSA and grass-fed beef operation in Connecticut. We knew after that summer that we were hooked.
2013 has brought the birth of our first child Mabel Grace Suscovich, and the birth of our first farm. I have documented my journeys over the last three years on my website http://FoodCyclist.com, and will continue to do so as I progress forward in my farming career.
