Availability for Tuesday June 27th

Posted 6/23/2017 11:43am by Natalie Kujala.

We lost a pioneer of organic agriculture in PA last week when Roy Brubaker, of Village Acres Farm, was killed in a farming accident. Roy was an early member of Tuscarora and provided sage guidance to the coop, its members, and other farmers throughout his life. Our community is grieving his loss, and we are sending our thoughts out to his family. His daughter Debra, who’s been farming alongside him for several years now, will continue to manage Village Acres, carrying on farming the land her father loved so much.

HIGHLIGHTS & LOWLIGHTS:

SCALLIONS: Soon we’ll have plenty of fresh onions but for now we have lots of scallions, coming from the Peacheys at Greenbriar farm. Available in red and white!

New! BEETS: We’ve got lots of beets coming in, chioggias, golds, reds, and mixed bunches. We also are starting to see some bulk beets. We haven’t had a large quantity of beets since last fall. I’m a fan of a quick vinegar pickled beet with some fresh oregano or basil as a snack or salad topping. Steam the beets, dress ‘em up, and chill.

CUCUMBER FRENZY: We’ve got divas, corintos, katrinas, European, and slicing cucumbers all available now!  I made some tzatziki this week – definitely the time to get cukes on the menu.

BUNCHED GREENS: From kale to collards to chard to dandelions, we’ve got the bunched greens your smoothies have been waiting for… Although I’m not so sure about a dandelion smoothie, I have heard that some folks like to juice them.

GARLIC SCAPES: Yes, they are still available! I stir fried some with shiitakes and squash, and some snap peas I froze last summer. Delicious.  

GOODBYE FOR NOW: Arugula can’t take the long days and the heat so don’t expect to see much for a while.

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.
