For Tuesday April 25th

Posted 4/21/2017 10:56am by Natalie Kujala.

Mark Stanley of Help From Above Farm provides us with the bulk of our plants. The other day he showed us some “salad bowls” he grew. These are 10-12 inch potted greens, ready to harvest and enjoy. I think I’m going for the lettuce mix salad bowl. How convenient to have salad-ready greens growing in my kitchen!  

Some of you have been asking about the farm tour we normally host every two years in May. This year we are going to do a little something different. We haven’t quite hashed out the details, but we plan on hosting an event in the fall. We will be sure to keep everyone posted once all the details are in place!  

Note: We are still experiencing a lull in sweet & spicy salad mix. Create your own mix with baby mesclun, baby green kale, baby arugula, and baby spinach!

HIGHLIGHTS:  

POTATOES: Wood Prairie Farm in Bridgewater, Maine has proven to have exceptional storage as we just received our last shipment of red and white potatoes from them. We certainly don’t expect them to last long as demand for potatoes is as high as ever.    

BULK RED RADISHES: Raw, pickled, roasted, and sliced. There are many ways to enjoy red radishes. How do I most enjoy this crisp, peppery veggie? My vote would be for radish-chive tea sandwiches.  

ORANGE JUICE CARROTS: Just when we thought orange juice carrots were no longer, here they are again! We have SEVERAL cases of these available, and flexible pricing for 10+ cases.   

WILD RAMPS: Last year was my first experience harvesting these wild leeks, and I have to say it was quite an experience. Emily and I lent a few extra hands to a short-staffed grower who took us to an amazing mountainside field filled seemingly endlessly with wild ramps. Smith’s Organic Farm is providing us with ramps earlier than we expected this year, and we are just about as excited as our customers are.  

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.
