To those of you set Sunday pick-up/delivery, this post is for you - We've finished the first harvest of the season, and we're looking forward to seeing you later this morning!
When you arrive, please look for the picnic table on the side of Crystal Lake Road. For your convenience, we'll have your items roadside, so you can just pull up next to the table and we'll help you grab your share.
As expected, the first edition of the CSA is full of greens and fresh herbs, and we have some really nice looking stuff for you that we think you will enjoy. Here's a list of what you'll be getting:
- White Kale
- Swiss Chard
- Pac Choi
- Chives, Parsley, Sage, Mint and Oregano
For today's protein, you will be getting 2 chicken halves, and as a thank you for your membership, we'll be sharing a Chicken Pot Pie with you as well. Our poultry processor, Morning Star Poultry, also operates a bakery where they make delicious pot pies with all natural and strictly GMO free ingredients - of course, these pies are made with our own pasture-raised chicken. We really like them, especially our hungry teenagers, and we think you will too. The pot pies will also be available as an add-on item for $12 each throughout the season.
Our neighbor Linda Reynolds, from Reynolds Family Farm, is providing farm fresh pasture-raised eggs that will also be available for add-on ($4/dozen).
If you're wondering what to do with your fresh ingredients, maybe consider making a marinade with olive oil, a bit of apple cider vinegar and some of your fresh herbs ... rub into the chicken halves and allow to marinate as they thaw - then you can grill them tonight! Serve with a fresh salad, or maybe even try this cool recipe for arugula pesto! Please remember to share any recipes that you have success with, so we can try them too, and share them in future posts.
Thanks again, and see you soon!
Mark, Diana, Eva and Noah
