August 28 Produce CSA pick up

It’s such a shame, we’ve had to disallow comments on the blog due to too much spam.  I love getting comments and questions from customers but the spam management was just becoming too time consuming.  Boo Hiss. On a lighter note, this week’s csa will be a hit.  This hot weather has pushed forward some beautiful crops (as I ‘m…

The weather was cool, cold even.  I was making soup!  So we decided to put a beautiful roasting chicken in the CSA.  Then the weather went up to 35 degrees!  Who the heck is going to turn the oven on for the next little while?  Not me!  So you now probably all have a chicken in your freezer for use…

CSA Pick up August 7th

I am loving this cooler summer that we are having.  These mild temperatures mean that we still have raspberries, lettuces and peas in the pod.  The rain means that the wild blueberries are plump and plentiful.  And today, when I lifted over eight thousand pounds of produce that was delivered, I was incredibly appreciative of the cooler weather. This week…

Protein CSA pick up July 31, 2013

The last CSA pick up for July!!  Hard to comprehend that it’s almost August!  But while it’s still July and bbq season, we thought we should put some Tamworth pork steak in the shares.  Tamworth is a heritage variety of pig.  Tams are long, lean, and a medium brown colour.  Their meat is rich and dark, more fatty than the…
