Good Life ginger is harvested fresh and delivered to Regional Access the same day. As a tropical plant grown in the much shorter season of the Northeast, it is a perishable product and is different than the cured ginger we generally find in the store. Young ginger lends a flavor and freshness to dishes that surpasses cured ginger, as well as opening up more opportunities for culinary experimentation. Consider trying it raw- grated into greens and root salads- cooked into vegetable dishes or in tea, ginger beer, glazes, sauces etc. Deliveries start the week of 10/01/12 so email firstname.lastname@example.org reserve some today!

What a hot summer its been! We feel for our local farmers who have been struggling with high heat and no rain. We do have some limited fresh local produce available for direct sales from our next door neighbors at Stick and Stone Organics Farm and Summer Times Farm in Ovid, NY. You can ask your sales rep to be added to the automated weekly email of our offerings or call our sales staff. If you want some more variety we are happy to link you up with our freight partners!

Flavor packed lassi is now available!
A couple of local entrepreneurs decided to “bring the lassi sensation to a whole new nation” and Regional Access is excited to help. This lassi is made right near our home base in Ithaca and is marketed under the name That Indian Drink. It is currently available in three unique and tasty flavors: Alphonso Mango Rosewater, Blueberry Orange Cardamom, and Raspberry Ginger Cinnamon.
