Just in Thyme for the Turkey!




Greetings from the Farm,We’re already on to the second distribution for the 2022 Winter season and sailing has been smooth. This cold snap has definitely made us bundle up, but it makes those winter greens oh-so sweet! The Thanksgiving holiday can be a busy time of year, but we’d like to remind you that the Online Farm Store will be open next week (Nov 23) for distribution on Nov. 30/Dec. 1. If you’re looking for some recipes to incorporate your farm-fresh produce into the holiday spread, we’ve included some links in the Recipes section below!

You say Potato…: You may have noticed a lot of potatoes arriving in your CSA share, and while they are absolutely delicious when embellished with butter and salt, potatoes themselves are incredibly healthy! Potatoes are nutrient-dense carbohydrates, packed with vitamins like Vitamin C and Vitamin B6. They also contain more potassium than a banana! One popular myth about potatoes is that they are just empty, starchy calories, but one 5oz potato actually has 26g of carbs, 2g of fiber and 3g of plant-based protein. Delicious and nutritious! 

It’s Pie-Day: If you ordered a frozen holiday pie, pick up will be this Saturday, November 19, at the Willowsford Farm Stand to give Harvest Symphony the time they need to prepare said pies. It will not be included with your regular 2022 Winter fulfillment option. You will receive an email tomorrow with more details regarding the Pie Pickup. Thank you to everyone who ordered, and enjoy!

Reminder: Winter CSA distribution has shifted to Wednesday and Thursday. Pick Up will be today (Nov 16) at the Boathouse and Farm Stand. Home Delivery South will be today (Nov 16) and Home Delivery North will be tomorrow (Nov 17). If you aren’t sure which fulfillment option you selected, please email farm@willowsfordfarm.com!

Twice the Toppings: We’re in luck! KT Pizza will be at the Boathouse today from 4pm-6pm during share pickup AND they will be hanging out in the Farm Stand (in the Grange) parking lot from 4pm-6pm tomorrow! While the Farm Stand pick up is still today, KT Pizza wants to spend more time with Willowsford and add Thursday to their regular schedule! So come get a slice and show KT Pizza that we want to be their mid-week commitment.

Photos From the Farm

Photos : There’s lots of green in these photos, and that’s a good thing! There was plenty of harvesting to go around this week, especially in the high tunnels. We retooled our process for microgreens and reducing our carbon footprint! So that we don’t have to run the Greenhouse heat full time, they now have their own special setup inside the pack shed, keeping them warm and thriving. Carrots came out of the ground, Farmer Rachel got plenty of “help” from our resident pup!
