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. Eggs are a staple for most of our workers, we all love them!
You will receive 2 packages 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 a combination of any of the following seasonal farm fresh product 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'S FARMERS CHOICE
A native grape to the south, it's flesh is rich and thick, with an intense sweetness like a Concord grape. They have a tough spicy skin that tastes like plums. Great for fresh eating, made into jellies or jams and even wine.
We have a small muscadine orchard here on the farm, with golden and purple varieties. They are bet stored unwashed, in a ziptop bag and should last over a week in your fridge. Our favorite way to eat them is fresh, just watch out for the seeds in the interior.
A true southern staple, okra is great fried, pickled or added to gumbo. Try pan frying it whole with chili oil( just enough to coat the pan, and a pinch of salt. Fry until soft and charred lightly.
Best stored in a paper bag or wrapped in a paper towel in a mesh bag in the fridge.
Often mistaken for a hull pea, noodle beans do not need to be shelled for their peas. They are eaten for their stringless pods, and taste more like asparagus than a bean or pea. They are full of nutrition and keep most of their color when cooked.
Best stored in a ziptop, sealable bag.
Parcook in boiling salt water for 3 minutes. Remove from water and stir fry them with oil, and minced garlic for about 2 minutes. Finish with a splash of soy sauce and lime juice. Finish with sesame seeds.
You will receive 1lb of local apples. Great for snacking or baking, fall truly is here with this crop!
Best stored in a crisper drawer, away from other produce.
