Weekly Availability List

Posted 12/8/2017 10:51am by Natalie Kujala.

I have produce on the brain today, so I’ll get right to it with the highlights. We look forward to taking your orders to see what veggies you have on your mind!  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

GOLD POTATOES: Oh the good ol’ gold potato- a fall/winter staple. As our local gold potato reserve is already running low, we have decided to source from our friends at Wood Prairie Farms in Maine. Please specify when ordering if you prefer local PA gold potatoes.  

ROSEMARY: This hardy herb is a wonderful complement to those delicious gold potatoes you have roasting in your ovens. Help From Above Farm has an almost endless supply of rosemary just waiting to be harvested.

SHALLOTS: In the fall and summer months, adding variety to recipes can feel difficult. Subbing shallots for onions is a great way to mix it up. Shallots offer a flavor sweeter and milder than onions, and are great roasted, pickled, and thanks their lack of bite, raw! Please note we are offering regular and jumbo shallots in both 5lb and 10lb packs.  

CABBAGE: Mmm do I love cabbage! If you’re like me, cabbage is delicious is almost any form, even raw with a little lemon juice and cracked black pepper (though I realize I may be an outlier here). I also rather enjoy cabbage in krauts, slaws, stews, and with those delicious gold potatoes I can’t stop talking about.    

BURDOCK ROOT: This powerful root deserves another round of in the spotlight. Burdock root has detoxifying, purifying, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial abilities, and can be made into tea or consumed as a vegetable. I’ve been told that burdock root has an earthy, sweet crunch similar to celeriac. How do you prefer to enjoy this mighty root

SPECIALTY SWEET POTATOES: Though our stock of local orange sweet potatoes (#1s, #2s, and jumbos) is still strong, our specialty sweet potatoes are running quite low. Local Japanese, white hammon, and deep purple sweet potatoes won’t be around for much longer, so get ‘em while you can!  

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.

As the weather cools and the craze of summer harvests become memory, many of us find ourselves with open spaces in our calendars that we once only dreamed of. These moments of free time quickly vanish as production planning, supply ordering, conferences, and root veggies take over, but those moments of downtime are not taken for granted. The staff at TOG would like to thank all of our growers for their continued hard work and long hours, and for allowing us to lend a hand in their businesses. We are also thankful for all of the delicious organic fruits and veggies we are able to enjoy because of your labors.  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

BURDOCK ROOT: Burdock root is a darn amazing plant, with detoxifying, purifying, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial abilities. Burdock root can be made into tea or consumed as a vegetable. I’ve been told that burdock root has an earthy, sweet crunch similar to celeriac. I think it’s high time I experiment with this impressive plant.  

APPLES AND PEARS: We have had quite a successful fruit year thanks to Benjamin Peachey of Peachey’s Fruit Farm. We are now down to the end of the “fruits of his labor”. Friday will be the last of his #2 apples, and we are down to only #2 Asian pears, and limited numbers of those as well.  

BABY ARUGULA: Great in salads, pastas, sandwiches, and pizzas, and delicious paired with salmon, pork, chicken, or shrimp. Baby arugula is one versatile little leaf, adding a pleasantly peppery punch to most any dish.

CITRUS: Meyer lemons and Hamlin oranges are available, but very limited for Friday. We will have more oranges and grapefruits available next week, and we should be getting in more lemons in the next couples of weeks. Please order all citrus early as it tends to sell out very quickly.  

NC GREENS: Bunched lacinato kale and collards from NC are limited for Friday, though green kale is in better supply. We love that our friends at ECO are able to provide us with bunched brassicas that don’t quite agree with PA winters, but that so many of us love to have year-round.  

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’s fingers are typing to you today. At the end of January, I am taking an evening ceramics class at Juniata College. I am already so excited for it. As I am sitting here thinking about it, I started to wonder how I could link it to agriculture. I started looking through the research papers regarding the intertwining of these subjects. My evening reading has been decided. I will have to ask our growers if they are taking any classes this winter. I have been getting plenty of emails about the conferences coming up this winter, which there are plenty of, with lots on panels and forums.

HIGHLIGHTS:  

SCORZONERA (Black Salsify): It has returned. This is coming from the family farmers of Sunny Ridge Farm in Path Valley, PA. I really need to take a case of this home so that I can practice with them. It would bring a smile to my face if someone would purchase a case, prepare them, and then tag us on Instagram. I would rather learn from you all then looking up recipes and uses by myself.  

BABY SPINACH: These leaves are finally exploding! Hares Valley Growers, Village Acres Farm, and Help From Above Farm all grow these babies beautifully for the coop. I just learned that during the First World War, wine fortified with spinach juice was given to French soldiers who had experienced hemorrhages. Would you drink this now?  

SCARLET TURNIPS: I have been looking for ways to use these beauties in my kitchen. I am on a Miso kick recently, so I found a recipe that combines both the scarlet turnips and miso (with a few other herbs and alliums).

CITRUS: Meyer lemons and Hamlin oranges are back. They are already going quickly, so please let us know as soon as you can if you would like to order some of these beauties. At the end of the summer, I had a wonderful cucumber and Meyer lemon juice. I am already looking forward to spring cucumbers so that I can make this refreshing juice!  

GREENS: For next week’s deliveries, we are bringing in bunched green kale, lacinato kale, and collards from ECO in Durham, NC where the bunched greens are still going strong. The bunched lacinato kale and collards are in limited supply, so please let us know early if you would like either of these.  

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 11/28/2017 12:55pm by Natalie Kujala.

Hello from Taylor’s brain and fingers today. Our production coordinator is busy planning with the growers for the 2018 growing season. This process will go on for a while, but it is good for us to start early. We are all excited for what this year has to bring. I am still on a Thanksgiving day roll (ha, bread, get it?), I guess. This time of year, I have some time off from work, so I have been cooking up a storm. I have been cooking far too often, which is out of relation to the number of people with whom I share a home. The things we cannot eat within a reasonable time, I have been putting in the freezer. I may start bringing in dishes to share at the coop!

HIGHLIGHTS:  

HICKORY NUTS IN SHELLS: There are a good number of species of hickory nuts, but over ten are native to the northeastern United States. I do not have much luck shelling these beauties, but I am told there is a pressure point on the top of the nut (near the stem) that when struck causes an even split.  

RUTABAGAS: These originated as a cross between the cabbage and the turnip. For most, the carving season has passed. I read that in the British Isles, they have long carved rutabagas and turnips to ward off evil spirits.

PURPLE TOP TURNIPS: With these cold nights, I have been thinking non-stop about rutabagas and their cousin, the turnip. The purple color usually shades the portion that is above the ground on this root vegetable. I recently saw that some people even add purple top turnips to their macaroni and cheese recipes. I will have to try that recipe with my family.

WATERMELON RADSHES: My go to hummus scooper. I usually have a bowl in the fridge with just cut up watermelon radishes, so that I am always ready to go. In almost everything I eat, I like to have a kick, which makes these beauties perfect for the job. Maybe tomorrow, I will have to take it to the next level. I am planning to make some hummus, so maybe I will roast some watermelon radishes to puree into the mixture! I am already thinking of more things to go into my freezer.  

GREENS REMINDER: We are still experiencing a lull in greens. With the change in season, head lettuces and bunched greens are coming to an end, but do not despair! Many of our growers plant fall and winter greens in their greenhouses, tunnels, and hoop houses, so salad mixes will return. Quickly, we are seeing the return of baby spinach!

  Happy Holidays! Taylor here today! I am very excited for this little break coming up. I will be able to see both friends and family this weekend. Hopefully, I will be able to go horse back riding with my aunt. I am sure that food is at the forefront of everyone’s brain this week, but we will be here to continually talk about food afterwards. When chefs return to their kitchens this weeks and buyers return to their produce departments and offices, we are ready to help. Please do not shy away from asking us questions.  

THANKSGIVING SCHEDULE: We will be closed Thursday and Friday (11/23-11/24) this week. We will be resuming regular deliveries on Tuesday (11/27).    

HIGHLIGHTS:  

SWEET POTATOES: I have to highlight these beauties again. I must agree with Natalie in that I do not grow tired of these when it is cold outside. Recently, I started simply halving a regular sized sweet potato. Then, I just spread some miso over the cut part and add some black peppercorn. Then, the beauties go into the oven for a little bit. I could eat this all day, every day.  

RED CABBAGE: Fun fact: I read early that when cooking red cabbage it can turn blue, but the addition of vinegar or acidic fruit retains the red color. Red cabbage and apples, in the same dish; this is the Tuscarora cooking contest. We will want to see pictures.  

GOLD BALL TURNIPS: Mashed turnips anyone? I have a few friends and family members who are quite fussy when it comes to vegetables and fruits. I have to be honest: I have had family say that they will never eat a turnip. I really enjoy adding turnips to my favorite soups and then offering it to my friends and family. They never knew they could like turnips so much. I will have to try it with mashed gold ball turnips.  

GREENS LULL: This past weekend, we had temperatures nearing the single digits. Due to the last few nights of freezing temperatures, we are experiencing a lull in many of our greens. As many of our growers plant fall and winter greens in their greenhouses, tunnels, and hoop houses, salad mixes will return, and hopefully very soon. This is the time of year, though, when bunched greens and full-sized lettuce heads wind down.

Posted 11/17/2017 10:54am by Natalie Kujala.

With the change in season comes a change in the TOG staff schedule. Taylor is now working in the office only on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and remotely on Wednesdays from 10am-2pm. You can still reach Taylor during her remote hours by selecting her direct extension (101) when calling into the office (technology is pretty great!), or you can return her calls by directly dialing her cell phone. Otherwise, there will still be someone in the office to take your orders on the phone from 9am-5pm Monday-Friday, and the sales@tog.coop email will be checked as usual.  

THANKSGIVING SCHEDULE: We will be open next Monday through Wednesday (11/20 to 11/22), but will be closed Thursday and Friday of next week (11/23 and 11/24). This means we will not be delivering next Friday (11/24). Please stock up for Thanksgiving on Tuesday! The list for Tuesday (11/28) will be sent out on Tuesday of next week, and resent on Friday.  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

SWEET POTATOES: With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I have to give a nod to one of my all-time favorite vegetables, the sweet potato. Whether baked whole, in fry form, in a casserole, or stuffed into a burrito, sweet potatoes are a welcome feature in any meal I prepare. I never tire of sweet potatoes- they are just so versatile, and delicious!  

GREENS LULL: This past weekend, we had temperatures nearing the single digits. Due to the last few nights of freezing temperatures, we are experiencing a lull in many of our greens. As many of our growers plant fall and winter greens in their greenhouses, tunnels, and hoop houses, salad mixes will return, and hopefully very soon. This is the time of year, though, when bunched greens and full-sized lettuce heads wind down.  

BABY LEEKS: I’ll give baby leeks another round of shout-outs as Taylor is so fond of her joke, and we’ve got these little guys in full supply. What vegetable is a sailor’s worst enemy? Leeks!  

BEETS: Great for roasting, juicing, or even raw, beets are chock full of vitamins and minerals. I love red beets roasted simply with a little salt, pepper, and olive oil. If you’re looking to juice or process red or gold beets, ask us about #2s and jumbo-XLs!  

ASIAN PEARS: It seems we sent out a false alarm yesterday about the Asian pears. They are not yet done for the season, but the grower will be quality checking more vigorously to hopefully sort any #2s out from his #1 cases. If you’re looking for Asian pears to process and don’t mind cutting out the browning in the centers, let us know and we can bring in some #2s for you.

Taylor is coming through the cover letter today! I have decorative gourds all over my desk. I really dislike that it gets dark so early, so I like decorating my space to put a smile on my face. In my apartment, I have holiday lights around the ceiling in my bedroom and the living room. I have one of those popular wine bottles, with holiday light inside of it, in my bathroom. Also, I have candles all over the place, which I light right when I get home. This darkness is so not pleasing. Anyways, back to Tuscarora. Lately, we have had a few people ask if all of our product is organic. The answer is yes. All of our growers are certified organic by a third party organization, which means all of our products are certified organic.

THANKSGIVING SCHEDULE: We will be open next Monday through Wednesday (11/20 to 11/22), but will be closed Thursday and Friday next week (11/23 and 11/24). This means we will not be delivering next Friday (11/24). Please stock up for Thanksgiving this Friday or next Tuesday! The list for Tuesday (11/28) will be sent out on Tuesday of next week, and resent on Friday.  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

GREENS LULL: This past weekend, we had temperatures nearing the single digits. Due to the last few nights of freezing temperatures, we are experiencing a lull in bunched lacinato, green romaine lettuce, and some salad greens mixes. As many of our growers plant fall and winter greens in their greenhouses, tunnels, and hoop houses, salad mixes will return, and hopefully very soon.  

BABY LEEKS: These babies are no friend to a sailor. What vegetable is a sailor’s worst enemy? This is my favorite joke. Everyone at TOG has heard me tell this too many times…The answer is a leek (how silly).  

TURNIP ROOTS: Purple top turnips are spicy and peppery, while sweet white turnips are on the sweeter side. Turnips are supposedly the oldest root crop, ooo-la-la, but it seems that they often go overlooked. Show your support for these enduring veggies by purchasing a case, or 3!  

CITRUS UPDATE: We sold out of Meyer lemons and Hamlin oranges earlier than we thought, but we do have grapefruit available for sale! After Thanksgiving, we will bring in more lemons and oranges to share with you! If you’re looking for 5+ cases of oranges or lemons, let us know so we can bring in what you need.

Taylor writing today! The last few days, I have been drinking an endless amount of hot tea. This past Tuesday, I went to the grocery store in the evening. There were plenty of cars that had an inch of snow on them; winter is coming…Chicano Sol posted beautiful pictures of their snowy fields, on their Instagram. They are working hard to cover their fall crops still in the field. The farmers of Bending Bridge Farm told me this morning that they are working hard to do the same. My goodness, the wonderful hardwork of agriculture. I am always impressed with our growers!  

NOTE: Several of you have been asking if we are hosting our customer farm tour this year. Unfortunately, due to several factors, we won’t be able to. BUT, if anyone is interested in touring one or two of our farms, please let us know as we will be happy to show you around!  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

ASIAN PEARS: There are so many varieties of Asian pears that it can be daunting. Our fruit grower, Peachey’s Fruit Farm, grows Olympic Giant and 20th Century Asian pears. These beauties are shaped like apples, but they have a tan, speckled colored skin. Their flavor is between butterscotch and caramel; why haven’t I purchased a case for myself? One of my friends makes a delicious pear desert, which is baked sliced pears in croissant rolls with a little brown sugar and butter. I need to make this for myself.

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR: Peachey’s Fruit Farm made a fresh batch for us! He uses his own #2 apples to make his vinegar. Recently, I have been making a salad dressing that is primarily cucumbers and apple cider vinegar. There are a few other ingredients that I am forgetting now, but I could drink this dressing by itself.  

CITRUS: Citrus is here! This year we are bringing in citrus from South Tex Organics in Mission, TX. We have grapefruits, oranges, and lemons. Please let us know what we can send to you!  

BABY GREENS REMINDER: We have freshly harvested baby greens coming in several days a week! As a reminder, many of our baby greens (arugula, sweet & spicy, ruby streaks mustard, pea shoots) can packed in 5lb, 8lb, or 10lb cases. Please let us know by FRIDAY AFTERNOON if you are interested in a pack that is not on our list! Bulk cases mean growers use fewer materials for packing, which means more savings for you! It is not too late for pear salad.  

HEAD LETTUCE: Landisdale Farm’s fields flush with lettuce, which has enabled us to keep our lettuces prices low. We have especially high volumes of small and full-sized heads of green romaine. Are you looking for a volume (10+ cases)? Ask Natalie or Emily about pricing!  

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.

Well, it’s officially cold, though I’m not exactly the best judge of temperature as I consider anything below 60-degrees sweater, hat, and glove weather. That being said, I’m writing this as the thermostat is barely inching past 40, and the weatherman is telling me that Friday night will show numbers in the 20s! I think there might be a good bit of agreement that 20-degree weather is cold! Think warm thoughts for all of the farmers who brave the weather no matter what it bears, to bring food to your table, grocery stores, and favorite restaurants.  

NOTE: Several of you have been asking if we are hosting our customer farm tour this year. Unfortunately, due to several factors, we won’t be able to. BUT, if anyone is interested in touring one or two of our farms, please let us know as we will be happy to show you around!  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

BABY GREENS: Missing the freshness of those summer veggies? Don’t fret! We have freshly harvested baby greens coming in several days a week! As a reminder, many of our baby greens (arugula, sweet & spicy, ruby streaks mustard, pea shoots) can packed in 5lb, 8lb, or 10lb cases. Please let us know by WEDNESDAY if you are interested in a pack that is not on our list! Bulk cases mean growers use less materials for packing. What that means for you? More savings!  

LARATTE FINGERLINGS: These nutty and buttery fingerlings are literally the queen of the fingerlings. In the US, some sell these under the name “La Reine” (meaning the queen). Who needs to buy chestnuts, hazelnuts, or almonds, when you could have a whole case of LaRattes?    

HEAD LETTUCE: Landisdale Farm and Chicano Sol have fields flush with lettuce, which has enabled us to keep our lettuces prices low. We have especially high volumes of small and full-sized heads of green romaine, but we also have red leaf and green leaf to spare. Looking for a volume (10+ cases)? Ask Natalie or Emily about pricing!  

COMING SOON: CITRUS! This year we are excited to be bringing in citrus from South Tex Organics in Mission, TX. By next Tuesday, we should have grapefruits, oranges, and lemons!

November weather! What more could I ask for in November? It has reached 70 degrees for my birthday (an excited Taylor here). Outside I shall go! What has November brought for you? The November/December issue of Growing for Market just came out yesterday, so I have some new reading material. There are so many things for me to learn! I appreciate that many writers in this publication write for non-farmers as well as farmers; they make it so that readers, with limited farming experience, can undertand! In this issue, a flower farmer explains the Dahlia (one of my favorite flowers) operation at the farm. I know I have said this a few times before, but I cannot get over how many ways there are to do things in this world.  

PHONE NOTE: If you are calling in to place your order, but the order extension is busy, please press 0. This will bring your call to an available staff member who can take your order.  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

GREENS REMINDER: We can pack baby arugula, and baby sweet & spicy in 5lb, 8lb, or 10lb cases. Please let us know by FRIDAY if you are interested in a pack that is not on our list!  

SPAGHETTI SQUASH: Last week, one of my friends made a spaghetti squash dish with sage and parmesan cheese. I could have eaten the whole thing by myself. I am planning to make this dish during my birthday weekend! We may not have these beauties for much longer, so please get them while they are hot.  

RADISHES: This section of the list is growing. I just heard this week that daikon radishes, in particular, could be used to make chips. Apparently, I have a lot of cooking to do in the near future. I have not had enough radishes in my life. To my knowledge, I have never eaten a daikon radish. These appear to have so many uses, so maybe I need to buy a box!

LARATTE FINGERLINGS: These nutty and buttery fingerlings are literally the queen of the fingerlings. In the US, some sell these under the name “La Reine” (meaning the queen). Who needs to buy chestnuts, hazelnuts, or almonds, when you could have a whole case of LaRattes? Not me.

PARSNIPS: We have had a few frosts here, before this strange warm weather, so these should be quite sweet! Once the temperature drops, the roots (or parsnips) convert their starches into sugars. I learned today, that these cousins of carrots could make a tasty wine. What is this news? People also use parsnips to make chips. I know what I need this weekend: chips made from all different types of veggies!  

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.
