For Friday, February 3

Posted 1/31/2017 12:50pm by Teresa Showalter.

Unfortunately, our office is still without heat, and the last couple of days have been far from warm. We are all counting down the minutes until Wednesday morning when we are scheduled to have our new system installed. It will be a relief to come to work dressed for an office instead of dressed for a pending blizzard. We were all having a bit of trouble typing this morning before the space heaters kicked in, so please excuse any spelling or other errors due to frozen fingers.  

In other news, Taylor and I will both be out of the office this afternoon. Taylor will be delivering an order to the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture conference, and I will be participating in a panel at the Mid-Atlantic Fruit and Vegetable Convention in Hershey, PA. Teresa and Shelly will both be in the office ready to take your orders over the phone, and I will be back Wednesday morning to input any email orders.  

Oh, and thank you to everyone who sent well wishes to Emily and her family! I have been passing those along to her and adorable baby Max.  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

SWEET POTATOES: Sweet potatoes are one of my all-time favorite foods. In fact, I have them for breakfast just about every morning, mostly stir-fried with kale and whatever allium I have on hand. Our growers had an amazing sweet potato season this year, so thanks them and my garden supply I’ve been a pretty happy camper.  

WATERMELON RADISHES: You want ‘em, we’ve got ‘em! If you’re looking for volumes large and small of this colorful, mild radish, look no further!  

MIXED COLOR CARROTS: Daniel Beiler of Sunny Ridge Farm grew a beautiful crop of mixed color carrots, which certainly add bursts of color to any dish. Baked, raw, steamed, or stewed, carrots are certainly a delicious winter staple.  

MAPLE SYRUP: As a reminder, our maple syrup supplier is hoping to move more syrup. Though we only have a couple of options listed, please let me (Natalie) know if you’re interested in a particular kind (dark, golden, amber) or pack (gallons, quarts, pints). We ask that you let us know a few days before your delivery day, so that we can give the grower enough time to pack your case! The syrup is sold only by the case (4 x 1 gallons, 12 x 1 quarts, etc).  

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.
