CSA Pickups and Delivery Resume Today!

Greetings from the Farm,

We are back baby! Our hiatus week was used to get things done and take some much needed RnR for members of the Farm Team. We’ve got a great new selection on the Online Farm Store, including peaches, plums, tomatoes and some new partner products. Just a reminder, if you are in Every Other Week Group B, you have an additional¬†hiatus week this week and your regular bi-weekly cycle resumes with pickup and delivery next week!¬†

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 13th and Sunday July 16th by 12pm for fulfillment on July 20/21/22!

Not-So-Secret Plant Sale: The Land Stewardship Team will be selling native plants at the Farm Stand¬†TODAY, July 6th¬†from 4pm-7pm. Sam has been hard at work in his native plant greenhouse and it’s time for you to enjoy the fruits if his labor! Featuring NEW plants like…calico beardtongue, mountain mint¬†and more!

Wagon Rides: We have wagon ride Farm Tours THIS Saturday, July 15th! Meet us at the Farm Stand and learn all about Willowsford Farm! You can RSVP for a wagon ride here.

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!

The Day Gets Away: Forget to pick up your share? If you forget to pick up your order on Thursday from the Boathouse or Farm Stand, it will be available to pick up on Saturday from 9am-1pm at the Farm Stand in the Grange. Unclaimed shares will be donated to the local food pantry on Wednesday, so if you miss the Saturday pick up, please email us at farm@willowsfordfarm.com to schedule an alternative pick up time.

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!
