CSA Food Box

A farmers market delivered to your door showcasing the very best of seasonal goods. Grown naturally, sustainably, locally and curated with care.

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.

Fun fact from our pasture this week. As part of our beekeepers pest management program in our apiary she has been utilizing our chickens! In fall as we pull our fall honey and get our bees ready for winter we end up with frames and supers that need to be cleaned up and stored for next spring.

One of the steps our beekeeper used was to bring some of these frames and supers out to our chickens so they could eat any unwanted pests before we cleaned them up to store. The chickens were very happy and had a lot of fun making their way through this treat.

You will receive 1 package of ground beef. Our 1lb packages are from pasture raised, grass fed cattle. A kitchen staple our ground beef tends to be more lean than most.

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 can replace the radicchio in this recipe with leaf lettuce like romaine.

RADICCHIO CUPS & GROUND PORK RECIPE

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 1 package of our pasture & forest raised bacon ends/bacon pieces. Great for holiday cooking, render them down to add flavor to traditional southern greens or on top of baked potatoes.

Bacon ends are great for any recipe that calls for you to use bacon pieces. We find it's best to render them down before using them in recipes. Cut them down into smaller morsels and cook in a cast iron pan. Start your heat at medium-high and reduce to low when the oil starts to foam. This low and slow method cooks the ends perfect.

We also have an amazing burnt ends recipe, great for appetizers this holiday season.

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 some of the following: broccoli or cauliflower

Broccoli or Cauliflower

One of the most popular veggies of the brassica family, it is best eaten within 3-5 days of harvest. Best stored in the fridge, broccoli and cauliflower like to breathe.Store in a mesh bag, in the crisper drawer. If you don't have a mesh bag, you can wrap loosely in a kitchen towel or paper towel. For a quick side, broccoli & cauliflower are great for roasting. Cut away individual florets, toss in olive oil. Salt generously and roast at high heat, a deep char brings out the most flavor. Finish with a squeeze of lemon for an addictive side dish. Pair with radicchio for an amazing winter salad in our recipe below.
