Weekly Availability List

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.

Mother Nature is acting a little crazy these days. Sunday was in the 80s, and this morning I woke up to frost. It’s confusing enough as a human to figure out how to keep up with the fluctuations in temperature. I can simply adjust the thermostat and my clothing; I can’t imagine how the plants and animals feel. Somehow through all of the highs and lows, my basil is still going strong. I must have gotten supercharged seeds. I’m not going to push my luck too much longer, though. It’s time to get cranking on some serious pesto.

HIGHLIGHTS:

WATERMELON RADISHES: Stephanie (an apprentice at New Morning Farm) brought a beautiful array of fresh veggies and hummus to my wedding celebration last month. My parents’ friends went gaga over the watermelon radishes- they’d never seen them before! They were so impressed with the color and flavor of these radishes that they ordered a case through the co-op to share among themselves.

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, Don’s grandmother was given these seeds by the Sioux in South Dakota. 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. To drive the point home of just how delicious these squash are, Don brought a pie for us to sample. Yum yum yum! That pie certainly did not last long.

ROMANESCO CAULIFLOWER: Here’s to another round of shout-outs for the Romanesco cauliflower. Unharvested, these remind me of little medieval castles tucked away in the field. Emily (our GM) taught me what I think is the best way to enjoy this architecturally unique veggie- simply chopped and lined on a baking sheet, drizzled with olive oil, and sprinkled with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika- bake at 450⁰ and voilà! 

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’re 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. Autumn Crowns are like the mini versions of the Cheese squash.

GREENS NOTE: Baby and young arugula, baby and young sweet & spicy, and baby mixed kale can be packed in 5lb cases for $48/case ($45 for 3+). Please let us know by Friday if you’d like 5lb packs of the arugulas or kale. We will have 5lb sweet & spicy available.

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.

Posted 10/13/2017 1:28pm by Natalie Kujala.

Fall is upon us, and so are multitudes of produce. Baby greens, bunched kales, sweet potatoes, beets, carrots, and winter squashes- to name a few- are aplenty. We can offer flexible pricing for many items, especially with volume orders. I also wanted to send out a reminder that we can do bins of winter squashes such as butternuts (#1 and #2 quality), pie pumpkins, Long Island cheese squash, Thelma Sanders, acorn squash, and honeynuts. Please talk to me (Natalie) for bin pricing, and keep in mind we need a few days notice before delivery. Thank you to all of our customers for supporting our cooperative, and our family farms.  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

ROMANESCO CAULIFLOWER: I was introduced to Romanesco cauliflower during my apprenticeship at New Morning Farm by TOG’s very own current GM- Emily. I remember thinking the heads all looked like little medieval castles tucked away in the field. Emily also taught me what I think is the best way to enjoy this architecturally unique veggie- simply chopped and lined on a baking sheet, drizzled with olive oil, and sprinkled with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika- bake at 450⁰ and voilà!    

COLLARD GREENS: Whether prepared with bacon, stuffed with red beans and rice, or added to soups and stews, collard greens add a hearty boost of nutrients to any meal. Fall is the perfect time to test your culinary skills and creativity with collard greens.  

THELMA SANDERS SQUASH: This is a wonderful, cream colored, heirloom acorn-type winter squash. A member of the Seed Savers Exchange received these seeds from a Thelma Sanders, in Adair County Missouri, in the early 1980s. He then shared them in the SSE group, where this variety of winter squash became very popular. They are supposedly better than a sweet potato!  

BUTTERNUT SQUASH: Butternut squash tops my list of favorite veggies. I love how its smooth, creamy flavor pairs so well with spicy seasonings. Though my all-time favorite way to enjoy butternut squash is simply mashed with butter and fresh ginger, I recently made a stew with chickpeas, kale, and various hot peppers. It turned out surprisingly tasty.

GREENS NOTE: Baby and young arugula, baby and young sweet & spicy, baby mixed kale and baby ruby streaks mustard can be packed in 5lb cases for $48/case ($45 for 3+). Please let us know by Friday if you’d like 5lb packs of the arugulas, kale, or mustard. We will have 5lb sweet & spicy available.

Posted 10/10/2017 1:37pm by Natalie Kujala.

I (Taylor) am getting to write the cover letter so much these days, which makes me so excited! Hopefully, this gives you a little more information about myself, so that I am not just a voice on the other end of the phone. This past weekend, my family and I celebrated my mom’s and step-sister’s birthday. October is a birthday filled month for my family. My dad’s birthday was last week and one of my cousin’s birthday is this weekend. Also, my birthday is coming up at the beginning of November (a little reminder for all of you!). I really just want you to keep asking me about my birthday!

HIGHLIGHTS:

THELMA SANDERS SQUASH: This is a wonderful, cream colored, heirloom acorn-type winter squash. A member of the Seed Savers Exchange received these seeds from a Thelma Sanders, in Adair County Missouri, in the early 1980s. He then shared them in the SSE group, where this variety of winter squash became very popular. They are supposedly better than a sweet potato!

RADISHES: The weather is still treating the radishes very well. We have bunched red and French breakfast radishes (so they have their tops). I think the tops have a similar flavor to arugula, so they have a nice kick.

CONCORD GRAPES: These big blue marbles are making our dock smell like grape juice! It is quite a refreshing smell. We would love to share this wonderful smell with you, so please order up! These beautiful globes will sadly not last forever, but we would like to share with you, while we have them!

GREENS SHOUT-OUT: Baby greens are continuing their happy streak! Arugula and sweet & spicy are experiencing especially prolific growth spurts. We can pack the baby greens in larger pack sizes (8-lb or 10-lb cases), so please let us know early if you would like this! The time of year, the head lettuce and bunched greens are prolifically producing as well. If you would like a picture of any of these, please let us know.

HOT PEPPER REMINDER: We will continue to offer you the following peppers in 1-pound pack sizes: Anaheim, Orange Habanero, Caribbean Red Habanero, Mixed Hot, Extreme Hot, Green Chili and Serrano, as long as supplies last. We can offer these for $8 per 1-pound case. Again, please let us know early, if you are interested!

Posted 10/6/2017 12:17pm by Natalie Kujala.

Taylor here today! This weekend, I am headed to my mom’s house to celebrate her birthday. My two younger sisters will also come home from college for the weekend. I am hoping that I can go horse back riding one morning with my mom and aunt; it looks like the weather will treat us well. Hopefully, our growers are enjoying this weather as well. This Sunday, New Morning Farm is having their Harvest Festival. There will be hay rides, tours, food and games. Please look at their website for Facebook page for more information. I am hoping to come back early on Sunday to enjoy the festivities.

HIGHLIGHTS:

CONCORD GRAPES: We will have these sweet spheres of goodness for a little bit longer, but not all good things last forever. Soon, we may have bulk cases of concord grapes, but the grower has not confirmed these yet.

BABY GREENS: Baby greens are as happy as can be right now. Arugula and sweet & spicy are experiencing especially prolific growth spurts. We can pack in larger pack sizes (8-lb or 10-lb cases) if you are looking for bulk deals! Please let us know as early as you can in regards to the special pack sizes, so that we can order them from our growers.

BOK CHOI: We will celebrate Boktoberfest this whole month, so do not despair. This fall, we are trying to give the count of the bok choi cases; this way, you can order the size of bok choi you want. How will you celebrate Boktoberfest this year?

HOT PEPPERS: Again, this week, we can offer you the following peppers in 1-pound pack sizes: Anaheim, Orange Habanero, Caribbean Red Habanero, Mixed Hot, Extreme Hot, Green Chili and Serrano. We can offer these for $10 per 1-pound case. Please let us know as soon as you can, so that we can order them from the growers.

BUNCHED RADISHES: The bunched radishes are looking beautiful. The tops love this weather as much as we do! Fall sure is treating us well.

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.

Taylor writing today. My swimming streak has ended. These cold nights cooled the lake too quickly. I have switched to celebrating the outdoors with campfires! I love the smell that attaches itself to my clothes and hair. One of our board members, Tony Ricci, the owner of Green Heron Farm, recently wrote an article in a supplement of the Huntingdon Daily Newspaper. He wrote of the trials that this time of year (the convergence of summer and fall) brings with it. It is the time of year, when fall crops start to explode, but summer crops are still producing. All the while, farmers must prepare for the winter in between all of the harvesting. It was pleasing to read Tony´s reflection on the season.                         HIGHLIGHTS:

RADISHES: Our radish section is growing. This week we do have bunched French breakfast and red radishes! Also, we have a variety of bulk radishes, without the greens, so please order away.

BOK CHOI: We will be celebrating Boktoberfest this year (ha-ha-ha). I do not expect a belly laugh, but I am hoping for a little chuckle. This fall, we are trying to give the count of the bok choi cases, so that it is easier to order the size of bok choi you want.

HOT PEPPERS: Again, this week, we can offer you the following peppers in 1-pound pack sizes: Anaheim, Orange Habanero, Caribbean Red Habanero, Mixed Hot, Extreme Hot, Green Chili and Serrano. We can offer these for $10 per 1-pound case. Please let us know as soon as you can, so that we can order them from the growers.

CONCORD GRAPES: The ever-popular grape is here. According to the Concord Grape Association, the ancestors of the Concord grape are native to New England. Their website is very informative; I suggest checking it out, if you have time. In their history section, it says that in the 20th century, American consumers bought more Concords than all other grape varieties combined, wow!

BABY GREENS REMINDER: Baby greens are as happy as can be right now. Arugula and sweet & spicy are experiencing especially prolific growth spurts. We can pack in larger pack sizes (8-lb or 10-lb cases) if you are looking for bulk deals! Again, just please let us know early for any special packs.

Posted 9/29/2017 1:05pm by Natalie Kujala.

Hello again fall. So nice to see you. I see you have brought with you an explosion of some of our favorite crops. I’ve been making soups with anything I can get my hands on.  Most recently I made a butternut squash, ginger, and kale stew. It was delicious!                      

HIGHLIGHTS:  

KALE: Fall is here, and kale wants you to know it! We have multiple growers with green and lacinato kale aplenty, and we would just LOVE to help get some of that kale out of their fields and into your bellies! Please see our recently reduced bunched kale prices!  

POBLANOS: We are offering poblano peppers again in 5-lb and 10-lb cases as the grower is swimming in them! If you have another pack you’d prefer, we can do it, just let us know early. That goes for all of our hot peppers in fact.  

BABY GREENS: Baby greens are as happy as can be right now. Arugula, sweet & spicy, baby mixed kale, and baby mustard mixes are experiencing especially prolific growth spurts. We can pack in larger pack sizes (8-lb or 10-lb cases) if you’re looking for bulk dealws! Again, just please let us know early for any special packs.    

CONCORDS: An all-around crowd favorite! Concords grapes will be here oh so soon, and available for Tuesday delivery. Our office staff has been just as anxious as you guys are. We can’t wait to make jellies, jams, pies, or just simply eat them fresh. My mouth is watering just thinking of the possibilities!

Posted 9/26/2017 1:32pm by Natalie Kujala.

This week, I (Taylor here) am so glad for this wonderful weather, which has been so kind to me! I know I talk about this every time, so I will not diverge this time. I have restarted my swimming streak, and I have found a new swimming hole on the lake, which is very secluded! In the next few evenings, I am planning to go there for a swim and a campfire! This morning, I have been thinking about smores nonstop. As my brain transitions back to the office, it is exciting to note that our field consultant is spending the day here to do some research! It was a nice surprise to walk in this morning to see her here. I am sure on a day like today she would rather be outside with one of our growers, but I am glad to have a chance to ask her some questions myself. She has been working rigorously with our growers to help our coop improve and develop! 

HIGHLIGHTS/LOWLIGHTS:

KIWI BERRIES: This may be the last sales day in which kiwi berries are available, so get them while they are hot!

HOT PEPPERS: This week, we are offering a few varieties of hot peppers in 1-pound cases. In addition, we are offering jalapeno and poblano peppers in 10-pound cases. Please look over these!

PEARS GALORE: We have a delightful variety of pears this week, which could pear (I had to type it) with so many other items. Peachey’s Fruit Farm (our excellent fruit grower) sends the pears, especially, to us when they are hard. There is an excellent section on the Oregon State University Agriculture Extension website about handling and ripening pears.

BROCCOLI REMINDER: Again, many of our growers’ broccoli patches have hit the ground running. The broccoli is not running, but I am sure our growers are! Please do not shy away from ordering as much broccoli as possible.

CARDOONS: These do take so much time to prepare, but we hope you are up for the challenge. We would love to see how you use these on Instagram! It would be wonderful to see the whole process in your kitchens. Cardoons are limited this week, so order early!

ORANGE HABANADA PEPPER (heatless): These beauties are new to our list in the past week or so. Deb Brubaker of Village Acres Farm, a very experienced grower in Mifflintown, PA, wants to trial selling these through the coop. The habanada pepper is a heatless habanero variety. Habanada peppers have a fruity and floral flavor. These may win against the yummy snack peppers as my new favorite movie-watching snack.

Thank you to everyone for being so patient while we worked out the kinks of our new phone system, and attemped to work out some of the old kinks of our software system. Sometimes it can be a challenge working in a remote area, but I’ll tell you what, you can’t beat the view. Even though my drive in to the office is long, I never tire of the scenery. Rolling mountains, wooded lanes, and prosperous fields. My drive is often interrupted by sudden stops for snakes, turtles, and chickens, but I’ll take that over traffic any day.    

Again, here’s our quick guide of phone extenstion numbers:  Taylor: 101, Natalie: 102, Shelly: 103, Emily: 104, Robin: 105, Teresa: 107, Norma: 108  

HIGHLIGHTS/LOWLIGHTS:  

MUSHROOMS: Okay I’ll start with the lowlight so we can end on a high note. We will have very limited numbers of mushrooms for Tuesday delivery. The farm unfortunately experienced shortages on their end. We should be back on track with these later in the week.  

ASIAN PEARS: I’m giving another shout out to Asian pears as our grower is having an awesome year, and these are one of my mom’s favorite treats. Asian pears offer a crisp, juicy, melon-like flavor, and pair great with arugula (which we also have in volume).    

BROCCOLI: Holy broccoli explosion! Throughout the week we were receiving calls from growers increasing their broccoli projections. One grower who initially offered 6 cases ended up sending us 50! Luckily our customers were ready for broccoli. Whew!  

SUMMER SQUASH: Just when we all thought it was time to switch over to our fall wardrobes and recipes, summer returned, and brought its squashes along with it. Ever since Emily mentioned ratatouille, I’ve been on a kick making crockpot variations of this classic dish. We have all winter to try our hand with those storage crops, but limited time to work those last summer veggies into our favorite recipes.

**We now have the real Friday list here! Wahoo! Our system is back up and running**

I feel like we are on a public service announcement streak with our cover letters, but here we are again! As some of you are already aware, we have a new phone system. We realize not everyone is going to be a fan of the automated system, but it really helps us streamline on our end, therefore allowing us to better serving our customers and growers! We will be learning the system with you guys, so please be patient while we work out the quirks. BUT, to make your lives easier, here is a quick guide of extenstion numbers:  

Taylor: 101, Natalie: 102, Shelly: 103, Emily: 104, Robin: 105, Teresa: 107, Norma: 108  

We hope this helps! Again, thank you for being patient with us!

HIGHLIGHTS:  PEARS: Pear season is still in full swing, and now flush with Asian and Bosc pears. Asian pears are one of my mom’s favorite treats, and boy does she make a mean Asian pear and arugula salad. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! I might just have to bend her ear for the recipe, and emulate the salad myself since we have the two key ingredients handy.  

YELLOW SEEDLESS WATERMELONS: We heard from a few customers that the yellow seedless melons they received weren’t quite ripe. Our grower was trailing a new variety, and pinpointed what he needed to adjust in his harvesting schedule. This may well be the last round of yellow seedless melons, and let me tell you, they are good!  

RHUBARB: Great in pies, cobblers, muffins, and jams, rhubarb is a vegetable that can explore the pockets of your culinary imagination. I recently saw recipes for spiced braised rhubarb and rhubarb hand pies. Now those I need to try!  

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.
