Greetings Friends and Neighbors,
It's been a busy week! With the awesome help of some incredible volunteers we've continued planting, mulching and weeding the main garden and things are coming along very nicely. The chickens and pigs have grown beautifully, and now that all the CSA pigs have gone to processor and the baby goats are finding their new homes, the farm is getting a little quieter and more focused on the continued harvest.
While the beginning of the season has been dominated by greens, you'll be happy to know that many varieties are waiting in the wings - Garlic, Potatoes, Onions, Tomatoes, Peppers, and Summer Squash are all starting to take off and we hope to share them with you soon!
In the meantime, here's the list of what you'll be receiving today:
-The Last of the 2021 Garlic Scapes -Radishes -Spring Onions -Curly Kale -Portugese Kale
-Mesclun Mix -Purple Basil, Lemon Basil, Curly and flat Parsley For this weeks protein, you will be getting 1 package each of our breakfast sausage and chorizo. Want more protein?

Delivery is free with orders of $100 or more. We have eggs available from Averill Park's own Reynold's Farm for $5/doz. Also available for add-on is Chicken Pot Pie for $12/each, and our very own Chicken Sausage (perfect for a cookout). Chicken sausage varieties are Garlic and Sweet Italian: $8.50 for a package of 6 patties.
Some ideas to try with this week's ingredients: Diana grew up eating huevo con chorizo for breakfast, and this has become a family favorite for us too: simply remove the casings from the sausage and cook in a skillet until up to temp. Add 6-8 beaten eggs to the pan and and fold into the sausage as the eggs finish cooking. Serve on a bed of fresh greens and top with feta (cotija or queso fresco, if available). Pair with a corn or flour tortilla or make a taco with your favorite tortilla and a cup of coffee or hot Mexican chocolate. YUM! Let us know what other recipes you try, and please share what you like best!
Thanks as always,
-Mark, Diana, Eva and Noah
