Greetings from the Farm,
But the Farm is so delightful, and since there’s no place like home, let it grow ~ let it grow ~ let it grow! It’s definitely a bleh kind of day, but there is still plenty to do here on the Farm. Please, be careful when stopping by the Boathouse and Farm Stand today for pick up and bring your umbrella!
Micro Greens Macro Benefits: You may have noticed an abundance of Micro Greens arriving in your Winter Share, we love to include them for a couple of reasons. First, micro greens are a premium product. Part of our goal at Willowsford Farm is to be a convenient option for the community and provide a lot of variety, more than just your standard fare of carrots, onions and tomatoes. We delight in offering high quality produce, especially things that can be harder to find at a grocery store. With inflation the way it is, micro greens can be a very expensive retail purchase, and we offer a competitive price and (dare we say) better flavor! Second, micro greens pack a macro punch when it comes to nutrients. They can contain up to 40% more phytochemicals than their adult counterparts. When included in your diet, micro greens can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol and support gut health. Not sure how to use them? Micro greens are delicious when tossed into a salad, blended into a smoothie or even cooked into an omelet!
Pie Day is Back: Harvest Symphony is partnering with us again to offer some great gluten free options for the holiday season! In addition to the delicious pies, you’ll also be able to preorder a quiche and some delicious Apple Spice Bread. The pies and quiches will be frozen, so please plan accordingly. Ordering for these holiday specialties will be open from today, November 30th until Saturday, December 10 with pick up at the Farm Stand on Saturday December 17!
