We have some exciting news! Ever wonder why certain plants do not thrive in your garden? Do you know if your soil is healthy and well balanced with organic nutrients that sequester inorganic fertilizer run off from your neighbor's lawn? Have a pesky pest and not know what to do? We have some expert friends who are planning on coming to our farm during farm share pick up July 30 to offer advice on burning questions you have on how to make your garden thrive. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks!
As a friendly reminder, the farm will be off for break July 20-26. This will create a shift in the schedule and the next pick up for half share members will be July 30. Half shares are for members who pick up every other week. Full share members will have one more pick up next week July 16 but will have a break on July 23.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
Here's a list of what you'll be getting:
- Fresh Garlic!
-Purple and White Kohlrabi
-Rosemary, Basil, Thai Basil, Parsley, Sage
Here are today's special items:
Protein for omnivore share- Country Style Ribs
Bakery from Bee's Knees Bakery- Parmesan Pesto Scones (Made with Sollohub Family Farm Basil)
Cheese from Four Fat Fowl- Award winning "St. Stephen." **We would like to take a moment to apologize for the lack of variety in cheese offerings. Four Fat Fowl is family owned and operated and sadly recently had a significant loss in the family which paused production. They subsequently suffered a production loss after they came back online. They hope to be back online in full force in the coming weeks. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Please keep the Four Fat Fowl family in your thoughts and prayers while they move past these challenges.**
These items will be available for pick up shares that pre-ordered with their farm share. They may be added on while supplies last.
Reynolds Family Farm and Groves Farm are providing farm fresh pasture-raised eggs that will also be available for add-on ($5/dozen).
Wondering what to do with your share? Our family enjoys country style ribs more than the pork chops! We usually rub them with our favorite Dinosaur BBQ red rub. Check out a pic out of our personal cook book- the red slashes are paprika and chili powder, not print. Grill low and slow and then topped off with our favorite sauce. We have been loving the Trader Joes Organic Sweet and Spicy Pineapple BBQ.
Pair this with a fresh salad made with cucumber, radishes and fresh lettuce and a homemade dressing with fresh herbs! As for the kohlrabi, prepare these like you would your favorite potato--roasted or mashed.
Four Fat Fowl has shared this incredible recipe for Cranberry Pecan Baked St. Stephen.
Thanks again, and see you soon!
