For Friday March 24th
Last night Emily and I participated in some meetings with several of our growers. Our cooperative is in a transitional period right now, and we are working on ways to better serve our growers and customers. Though we still have a lot of decisions to make, we are hoping to add a 3rd delivery day to our schedule. So, along with Tuesday and Friday deliveries, we are hoping to add a Wednesday delivery. We should have a decision on this within the next few weeks, and I’ll be sure to keep everyone posted! Some of you have already mentioned that a Wednesday delivery would be beneficial, but if you haven’t passed this along yet, please let me know. I’d love to get an idea of what we can expect with adding a 3rd delivery day to our week.
#2 GARLIC: Though we are officially out of shallots and #1 garlic for the season, we still have lots of #2 garlic available. This garlic still looks beautiful on the outside, but is experiencing some sprouting when opened up into gloves, which is reflected in the price. Don’t be deterred though! With a little cleaning up, this #2 garlic is still wonderfully flavorful.
RADISHES: We may be at the tail end of our beets, #1 potatoes, and nearing the end of celeriac, but we still have radishes galore. Watermelon radishes, green meat radishes, black Spanish radishes, and mixed radishes! These won’t last much longer either though, so stock up while you can!
SWEET & SPICY SALAD MIX: Daniel Beiler of Sunny Ridge Farm is still going strong with this delicious greens mix. I’m actually currently enjoying a salad of it right now. We will be offering sweet & spicy for Friday in 1.5# and 5# cases. If you’re hoping for some 5# cases, please get your order in early.
PLANTS: Be on the lookout for plants on the list at the end of this week! We will start having plants available for delivery next week. I can’t believe it’s already spring!
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.
