That must mean it is time for a variety of holiday markets and festivities.  While you are planning your holiday shopping and outings here are some to consider and where you can find our pasture-raised meats and organically managed veggies, […]

At the Farmstand: November 16-20

Thanksgiving is next week!  Wow, how time flies when you are scurrying to get ready for winter.  The farmstand is stocked with more treats to come this weekend as we finally get some additional time in the farm processing room. Lots of great veggies, including some fresh greens though we are transitioning to winter greens […]

Paw Patrol winning Hearts

Yes, famous dogs and cats is our naming scheme this year and Paw Patrol was suggested by our niece while at Auntie Camp this summer.  (Of course we thought she was saying “Papa Troll” and kept asking if there was a dog involved). Anyway,  the group of 10 piglets we bought from Hogwash Farm this […]

Brussels (Sprout) Tops

So, the sprouts themselves grow on the sides of a long stalk, sheltered by the leaves  of the plant.  The top-most leaves, are delicate, almost like baby cabbages and a special treat when you are harvesting the plants.   This week, probably this week only, we have this special offer.  Brussel Tops. What do I do […]

Greens with Fresh Ginger

There are so many ways to use fresh baby ginger, here is one simple way to spice up your greens.  One benefit of the baby ginger is that it isn’t as fibrous as mature ginger so you can often even put a chunk through your garlic press or slice or mince it. 1 bunch kale, […]

At the Farmstand: October 26- 31

Here we are at end of October, though the weather has me still feeling like it is September.  But look of farmstand and hoophouses are a sure indication. Fall veggies are now dominant and this week, several new ones are on offer, all cured and ready for you.  Plus a real treat from Last Resort […]
