Week 4

Posted 6/27/2018 11:27am by Stephanie Bradshaw.

Hi Friends,

We hope you guys have enjoyed your produce so far!  Each week we're seeing more and more things that are ready to harvest. Our Full shares this week contained:  Pure Pennsylvania Maple Syrup, Purple Romaine Lettuce, Green Curly Kale, Italian Basil, Yellow Squash, Cucumbers, Zucchini, Spring Onions, Caramba Cabbage, and either Broccoli or Cauliflower.  At the bottom of the email I've included some recipes for you.  Over the next few weeks, you'll need cabbage recipes, so I've posted my favorites for you.  I make slaw almost every week, and my recipe is pretty simple.  (Grated cabbage, carrot, and onion - I go light on the onion - 1/4 cup vegan mayo, 1 Tblsp. sugar, 1 Tblsp. Apple Cider Vinegar).  

Next week, we hope to have:  Spring Onions, Mint, Purple Cabbage, Squash, Zucchini, Garlic, Cucumbers, Cauliflower or Broccoli, and possible Potatoes or Tomatoes!  We've had just a few tomatoes to come in, and they are mouth watering!!

Our Online Store is now open, and you can place an order for any extras you may need for the following week.  We keep the store open from Thursday through Sunday, and then deliver with your shares that week.  Red Potatoes, Cabbages, Sweet onions, and all sorts of other items are in the Veggie Department.  Keep an eye on our Boutique department as well.  Over the next few weeks, we'll be adding several salves and balms.  We have a green herbal salve that should be in the store soon, and have already added our beloved B&W ointment.  So many folks have asked me about the ointment, so we decided to carry it.  Our Farmer is on the Burns and Wounds team, and swears by this stuff.  We have seen it do some amazing things!  I personally use it for any kind of burn or sunburn on my children, bug bites, scrapes, and even on my face and neck at night :)  

Please go ahead and save the date for our "Family Farm Day".  On Saturday, June 30th, from 10-2pm, we will be opening the farm to our CSA members!  Come see what we do, and why we're different from other farms.  See how the crops are grown, and harvest a little while you're there!  We encourage you to bring your children, so that they too can see where their food is coming from.  It's always a super fun day, and we hope to see you all!
