At the Farm: October 1-6

fair worthy cabbageHello October.  With this cool weather, perfect time to start in on soups and slow cooked goodness!  Perhaps with the last of the peppers!   We have some new meat cuts stocked this week including goat shanks and fresh (meaning not smoked) ham shanks, which are much meatier though similar to ham hocks!  Great recipe this week, or perhaps Jamie Oliver’s Jerk Hocks…hmmm so many good choices.

We have the last bits of the heat loving veggies and the alliums are all cured and brushed and ready for you as well.
