PROTEINS THIS WEEK
You will receive one dozen pasture raised eggs. Pasture-raised 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.
You will receive one package of our Pasture & Forest raised pork cheese bratwurst. Each pack weighs 1 lb and contains 4 farm style bratwurst.
Our bratwurst is generally leaner than what you will find in the grocery store, made with simple ingredients.
We recommend cooking these in a frying pan. Fill with water so that it comes 1/3 of the way up the sausage. Prick the sausage lightly with a fork, and bring the water to a boil. Reduce and let simmer until water has almost evaporated. Add a good glug of olive oil to the pan and cook until brown, gently rolling the brats around the pan until brown and cooked through.
You will receive one package of our world class ground pork (1lb) . Our ground pork is forest and pasture raised, naturally rich in vitamin D3 and has a great balance of omega 3 & 6.
Rich in flavor, try subbing it in any meal to replace ground beef.
You will receive a 1lb package of our pasture raised, grass fed beef.

You will receive a combination of any of the following seasonal farm fresh products this week
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. This week you could receive white lady turnip, purple murasaki potatoes, Duncan Farms Italian Seasoning.
Purple Murasaki Potatoes
A purple thin- skinned, white fleshed Japanese Sweet potato. Has a higher starch content than a traditional sweet potato similar to yukon gold potatoes. This higher starch content makes it fluffy and moist when baked or roasted. Flavor notes of chestnut and brown sugar. Great for roasting or pan frying. Store in a cool dark place in your home.
Wash skin right before eating. We love cutting them into 1” cubes, coating in olive oil. Sprinkle on Duncan Farms Italian seasoning, a few cracks of freshly ground salt and toss to coat. Place in a preheated 400 oven on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 20 mins ( or until cooked, depends on how thick you diced them), flipping them once halfway. You want them to be fork tender and crispy.
White Lady Turnip
This traditional turnip is great for roasting, and the greens are perfect for turnip greens.
Store turnip roots unwashed in a zip top bag, with a damp paper towel and place in your crisper drawer.
Sustainable Delivery Policy
As per our policy update, please remember to have a cooler out on the day of your delivery for our drivers to place your CSA items into.
OUR TIP: Leave some frozen water bottles in the bottom of you cooler as an easy to use ice pack. This will help keep your goodies as fresh as possible.
