A post shared by Heimat New York (@heimatny)

German for “homeland,” Heimat was started by Germany native Ute Londrigan. Ute was inspired by her grandmother, who used to utilize the fruit growing in her backyard as the basis for her fruit liqueurs. Heimat sources their fruits locally to make vibrant, complex specialty liqueurs. There are a bunch of flavors available, but we recommend starting with blackberry because it’s the liqueur that initially inspired the brand. But elderflower and rhubarb also make for fantastic seasonal gifts for that special woman in your life.

A CSA, or community-supported agriculture, is truly the gift that keeps on giving.

Head to Hudson Valley CSA Coalition’s website and enter in the zip code of the woman you’re buying for to locate the farms nearest to her. Read up on each of the farms and decide which farm fits her needs best, then follow the instructions to sign up! It will vary by farm, but many sign-ups will get 20 or more weeks’ worth of agricultural goodies!
