New Summer Produce Available!

Greetings from the Farm,We’ve had a great time this week hosting Farm Camp in partnership with the Willowsford HOA! We love engaging with young people and teaching them about where their food comes from. We’d also like to take this moment to issue a gentle reminder: if you are travelling this summer and need your pickup/delivery adjusted, please let us know as soon as possible. While we can usually accommodate last minute requests, as much advance notice as possible is appreciated. We’ve also received an increasing number of requests to pick up early, as orders are not packed until Thursday, this is something we cannot accommodate. We are happy to move your order to a different week if you are out of town, but we cannot facilitate early pick ups or deliveries. 

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 20th and Sunday July 23rd by 12pm for fulfillment on July 27/28/29!

Basil Turning Black?: Tired of your basil not holding well? Don’t store it in the fridge! The best way to store basil is on your kitchen counter with the stems in a glass of water. You can also enjoy the lovely aromatics, and your basil for longer!

Farm Yoga: The Farm will be hosting a FREE yoga event at the Farm Stand on Saturday July 22nd from 9:30am-10:30am. JKS Yoga will be leading this outdoor program for ages 15 and up! Learn more and please RSVP to the event here.

Food Truck Fiesta: We have two food trucks joining us this week! KT Pizza will be at the Boathouse from 4pm-6pm, and Taco Town makes it’s long awaited return to the Farm Stand from 4pm-7pm!

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!Basil should be kept on the kitchen counter in a glass of water, please do not refrigerate!
