It’s been a busy week trying to bring in the rest of the harvest for storage, including celeriac, watermelon radishes, rutabaga, cabbage, and carrots. The temperatures look like they are going to take a dip the end of the week here so we are also thinking of providing additional outside protection to some of the greens in the field. We’ve been lucky enough to not have to do that extra step thus far.
The new item in your box this week is Brussel Sprouts! We like to give them to you on the stalk as they are such a unique vegetable. Simply pluck off the mini cabbages and bag them, and then trim off their ends prior to roasting or cooking them.
The Dinner on the Farm last weekend was a wonderful event. The weather was beautiful, native american flute music flowed through the barn compliments of the local talents of Ed Legace, and the food was enjoyed by all. We had a few CSA members in attendance and they requested that the Chocolate Flourless Torte be added to the CSA shares. Hmm, we’ll let you know if we can find a way to do that sometime!

THANKSGIVING & CHRISTMAS PRODUCE BOXES—PREORDER NOW!
The harvest from the fields this season has been really wonderful. We will be offering Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday produce boxes this year as a one-time box for the holidays. This is a special order box filled with roughly 20# of naturally raised produce such as onions, winter squash, potatoes, cabbage, carrots, additional root crops, cooking greens or spinach, herbs such as rosemary and sage, and eggs. The cost is $50 and should be reserved ahead of time as there is a limited supply. Great gift idea! If you want to reserve a Thanksgiving or Christmas Produce Box, please email Heather to place your order. These boxes are available to anyone and would be available for pick up at the farm on a Saturday or Tuesday prior to the holiday. Please plan to bring a box/bag/crate along to transfer your items from the packed box to your home.
