Availability List For Friday May 12th

Posted 5/9/2017 11:40am by Natalie Kujala.

Mother’s Day is upon us this weekend. I (Taylor) am going to my mom’s house (outside of Philadelphia) this Friday to spend the weekend. Also, this Saturday my sister coming home from studying abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark. We are having two family parties, which makes me so excited! Hopefully, Mother’s Day weekend makes many of you think of family and friend gatherings as well. Mother’s Day is another important marker of spring. Our growers are starting to offer a few very special spring items, one of which is strawberries! There is also a new variety of chard on the availability list this week, which is called Barese chard. There are a few new items on the list, so please let us know as soon as you can if you are interested in any of these items.

HIGHLIGHTS:

CARROTS: We wanted to make sure you know that our growers are reaching the end of their storage carrots. After these carrots leave our coolers, we will not have carrots until the end of June. Yesterday, I saw some of the baby maroon carrots and they look so adorable. I know adorable and carrots do not normally go together, but now they do! Our carrot quantities are definitely starting to dwindle, but we will have more as the spring and summer progress.

CUCUMBERS: Daniel Beiler of Sunny Ridge Farm and his family have been doing a wonderful job with the Corinto and Katrina cucumbers. They have made sure to take care of the plants during these strange fluctuations in weather recently. They are continuing to offer these beauties to us, so please let us know if you are interested. We would appreciate if you could share with us on Instagram how you are using the cucumbers.

BUNCHED GREENS: If you are looking for bunches of greens, please take a look at the cases of 12 bunches that we are offering.  We are offering bunched cases of Italian dandelion greens, catalogna puntarelle, rainbow chard, and kales. These are all limited in quantity, so get your order for bunched greens in early!

GENERAL GREENS: If you are looking for greens, please look through the options of head lettuce, kales, chards, mustard greens, and lettuce mixes. As spring inches forward, we will receive a few more options. For Friday’s delivery, we will have some options for salad mixes, but they will be limited. The cold snap at the beginning of this week slowed down the growing speed of our growers’ greens.

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.
