Weekly Availability List

Produce List for Tuesday Oct. 24th

Posted by Natalie Kujala :: Friday, October 20 :: 1:06pm

Taylor writing today. Outside the three windows in front on my desk, there is a wonderful bird habitat. The past few days, I have been seeing a lot of cardinals. I do have a bird identification book in a side draw of my desk, but I try not to look at it too often during the work day! On a side note, I had a good number of customers tell me “Happy Fall” yesterday. It has been so crisp outside the past few days, how nice. This weekend, my friends and I will be carving pumpkins; we just need to add pumpkin spice lattes!  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

CELERY: Jake and his family, of Sunrise Farm in Path Valley, have been growing celery for the coop this year. I normally use celery as a spoon for hummus, but I hear it has many uses. Jake can send the celery in bags, if you would prefer (just please let us know).  

EXTREME HOT PEPPER MIX: Eric, who owns Shoestring Acres, produces this mix which contains Trinidad moruga, Caribbean red, scotch bonnet, orange habaneros, paper lanterns and ghost peppers. I have heard recently that the ghost peppers are considered the hottest pepper currently. Last year, I saw someone at the coop eat a whole ghost pepper, without showing any signs of discomfort. It was quite a site!   

GRANDMA LAURA’S PIE PUMPKINS: Don Spackman of Roundtop Farms has a very special pumpkin to offer- Grandma Laura’s Heirloom Pie Pumpkins. As the story goes, a member of the Sioux tribe in South Dakota gave these seeds to Don´s grandmother in the early 1900s. She later carried them with her to PA in 1918. Don has been keeping the legacy of his grandmother alive by continuing to grow these specialty pumpkins. They make delicious pies!  

AUTUMN CROWN SQUASH: If you love the flavor of Long Island Cheese squash but find them difficult to handle, Autumn Crown squash might be just what you’re looking for! If you are not familiar with either Long Island Cheese squash or Autumn Crown squash, they are flat, beige skin colored squash, with a taste similar to butternuts.  

BUNCHED GREENS: The beautiful bunched greens are ready to be untied in your kitchen, or by your customer! Please show us how you use these greens or your display on Instagram!  

GREENS REMINDER: Baby and young arugula, and baby and young sweet & spicy can be packed in 5lb, 8lb, or 10lb cases. Please let us know by this afternoon if you’re interested in a pack that isn’t on our list!  

NON-ORGANIC, ALL NATURAL LOCAL CHICKEN EGGS: AVAILABLE IN MEDIUM, LARGE AND EXTRA-LARGE, 15 DOZEN BULK. PLEASE CALL TIM DERSTINE AT HARES VALLEY GROWERS AT 814 448 2784 FOR GREAT EGG PRICES.
