Cool off at the Farm Stand!

Greetings from the Farm,Looking to cool off in this heat? Join us at the Farm Stand in the Grange between 9am-1pm today! The Farm Stand has a wonderful selection of ice cream and sweet cold treats to enjoy! This is your friendly reminder that the Online Farm Store will close tomorrow: Sunday, July 30th at 12pm!

This Weeks Cycle: The Online Farm Store is open for business! We are in it to win it for the CSA, which means the ordering cycle is now in effect. Place your order between Thursday July 27th and Sunday July 30th by 12pm for fulfillment on August 3/4/5!

Native Plant Sale: The Land Stewardship Team will be joining us at the Farm Stand today, Saturday August 5th from 9am-12pm¬†for a Native Plant Sale! Sam’s plants are growing strong and this is a great opportunity to add some native features to your garden or landscaping. Native plants also help our native pollinators!¬†

Garlic Season : We’ve been doing a mini series on garlic throughout the season as each part of the plant has been ready to enjoy. We are finally into savoring the delicious bulbs, also known as heads of garlic. When we harvested the garlic scapes, we removed the budding flowers from the garlic plants to send energy back down into the bulbs. Our heads of garlic are looking large and delicious! Currently curing in our open greenhouse with the onions, we included a photo in last week’s newsletter of the bunches hanging “from the rafters”. You can now enjoy our Willowsford Garlic! It will be available on the Online Farm Store this week.

What’s Cookin’ Good Lookin’ : Got a recipe that you’ve been loving with your Farm Share? Have a family food tradition that’s always a hit at parties? We would love to know! It brings us great joy to see and learn how folks are using our food. If you are open to sharing, please send us your recipe and a photo to have it featured in our Farm Newsletter! If you are comfortable with the recipe being shared on our social media, please include your socials so we can give credit where credit is due!

Storage Tips for Farmer’s Choice!

Did you know that your refrigerator uses a dehydration process to keep everything fresh? This is why your¬†crisper drawer¬†is the star of the produce show! Keeping your crisper drawer (set to “vegetables” if needed) airtight will help keep your Farmer’s Choice fresher for longer. For this week’s share, we recommend keeping everything airtight in that crisper drawer, even the greens! Our go-to for using up share contents before your next fulfillment is a stir-fry. It’s an easy and fun way to use more veggies and clean out your fridge!Basil should be kept on the kitchen counter in a glass of water, please do not refrigerate!¬†
