Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Member News

Farm Members, please refer to your pickup schedules.  In this week's share:
  • Tomatoes!!! - A bag of super sweet orange cherry tomatoes - first of the season!  The cool spring & early summer have really pushed the tomato harvest late this year, but we're starting to see them trickle in, starting with the cherry tomatoes.
  • Garlic - First of the season!  Just harvested this week, this garlic will still be super crunchy and won't yet have the full papery outer skin. 
  • Cabbage - Our "Savoy" variety of cabbage is finally ready.  The cabbage didn't fare well this spring, but it's finally here!
  • Green Beans - The green beans are back, you'll each receive a nice big bag full.   like summer veggies!
  • Hot Peppers - a bag featuring 2 types: chili (mild/medium) and jalapeno (hot).  Great raw, grilled, etc
  • Sweet Peppers - You'll each receive 4  sweet peppers - both green and yellow!  Super fresh & crunchy.  Great raw or cooked.
  • Cucumbers - several in each of your shares! Fresh, crunchy, and thin-skinned.  Awesome!  Cucumbers are delicious - sliced onto salads, sandwiches, or in a salad all their own... such as my favorite - a vinegar & sour cream sauce cucumber salad!
  • Zucchini / Summer Squash - 4 varieties in your shares, with 2-3 of each variety, it's peak summer squash season, so it's a huge bag!  Patty Pan (shaped like a round flower), Middle Eastern Zucchini (my favorite) has a light-green skin, creamy texture, and mild flavor. Yellow crookneck has a beautiful color!  And regular green zucchini is a staple!  Zucchini is delicious cooked, but it can also be eaten raw on salads & with dips!
  • Basil - YUM! There is nothing like fresh basil.  So delicious used fresh & raw on sandwiches, salads, pizza, pesto, you name it!
  • Swiss Chard - Super delicious chopped finely on a raw salad, or lightly sauteed. Deer love this crop, but it's super delicious and healthy for humans, too!  :)
Our recipe database contains cooking ideas for all the vegetables we grow - link here.
Our CSA Program (Community Supported Agriculture) is a membership program in which members become "shareholders" in the farm's seasonal vegetable production & receive a "share" of the farm's organic  produce for our full 22-week-long season! To learn more:  .
