CSA January 18
Make sure and visit our online store each week if you'd like any of our other products added to your delivery.
1 Dozen Eggs: One dozen farm fresh eggs. Our chickens are pasture-raised, which means they are free to roam and forage for grass and bugs, and are supplemented with a balanced feed for a robust diet. Compared to factory eggs, pasture-raised eggs have more vitamin A, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin E.
1 Package of Bacon: From pasture raised heritage hogs. Our bacon is hickory smoked and contains no nitrates.
1 Package of Beef for Kebobs: From pasture raised cattle, our beef for kebobs is a premium sirloin cut. By cutting these into smaller cubes they make a GREAT addition to our Homestyle Beef Stew Recipe below.
1 Package of Broccoli Microgreens: We have collaborated with Sweet City Micros once again to give you a nutritional powerhouse in your CSA this week. Broccoli microgreens contain up to 10-100x sulfurphane than mature broccoli. Sulfurphane is an antioxidant known to kill and prevent cancer from spreading. This antioxidant acts as the security guard of the cell, guarding your cells from harmful free radicals. Find out how to care for them and amazing recipes here.
1 Package of Green Leaf Lettuce: Store in the refrigerator crisper drawer and wash just before using. Rich in vitamin A.
1 Package Shiitake Dried Mushrooms: Shiitake mushrooms are an earthy, full-bodied flavor. Pair with rice pilaf, stir-fry, or risotto. It also is great for adding their umami flavor to soups, and sauces for chicken and steak. Strain the liquid after reconstituting, and use it in stocks and soups to add an earthy, mushroom flavor. To reconstitute: Cover with boiling water and let steep for 15-20 minutes. Can be added to soups or sauces as is, as long as it cooks for a minimum 20 minutes.
Grower's Choice: This week you will receive a combination of any of the following farm fresh produce: potatoes, carrots, celery, leeks, onion, kale, broccoli, brussel sprouts, or sweet potatoes.
Please remember, we are a beyond organic, permaculture farm and availability may change by the time we send you your CSA . We strive to provide you with what we have planned this week, but if something changes, we will upload this change before you receive your CSA. We send out only top quality produce, but due to our zero chemical policy, a little marring may occur on products. These vegetables/fruit are still beautiful and delicious.

We hope you try our Homestyle Beef Stew this week. A wonderful thing about stew is that tastes even better as a leftover.
