Cucumber, Tomato and Freekah Salad with Mint

At market on Saturday, there was a young boy with his dad asking what you would do with the mint we had in our herb basket. He loved the smell of it, and convinced his dad to buy some. While talking to them, I quickly listed a half-dozen ways I’d enjoy using a bunch of mint, and realized I’d better take some home with me so I could get started on that list.   The mint in this salad really makes the classic summer vegetables sing...

Cream of Celery Soup

Posted by on Jul 16, 2014 in Recipes | 0 comments

We’re growing celery!  I’m so excited, because celery grown on a small farm and eaten fresh is so much different than what most of us are used to. If you were to taste our celery side-by-side with the grocery store variety, you might not even recognize it as the same vegetable. Those pale flavor-lacking stalks may be fine for ants on a log, but our dark green, leafy celery is full of flavor and perfect for braising or making soup....

Miso Soup

Posted by on Jul 16, 2014 in Recipes | 0 comments

(From Erika Tebbens. Copied from June 2013 newsletter.) Right now we have scallions and they are excellent. I am always on the hunt for scallions so that I can make miso soup. I often make miso soup for my son. It’s one of his favorites. He actually had some for breakfast the other day. Mine is super simple: a container of firm tofu that’s been cubed, a few heaping spoonfuls of miso paste, a bunch of chopped scallions, water, and a...

Posted by on Jul 4, 2014 in Recipes | 0 comments

Amber here, blogger at OBSESSIVISION. During the past 14 weeks, I’ve brought you a powerful pesto pizza and a micro green omelette. Well, this week I decided to marry the two. Pizza has been a weekly staple in our house for as long as I can remember. By adding greens you can turn this splurge meal into a healthy one. Anything in moderation, right? Having the opportunity to carry fresh ingredients from farm to table satisfies both my...

How we get it all done

Posted by on Jul 2, 2014 in General | 0 comments

A lot of people ask how  we get everything done here. Well, we divide and conquer. We have several different crews.  Most important to you, our customer, is the harvest crew. They harvest 4 days a week to make sure that all our great veggies get to markets. To keep up with the farm production, we have to harvest strawberries 3 times a week and the squash and cukes grow so fast that they have to be harvested every single day! This crew spends...

Erin Coker photo   RECIPE There are few things that make me think of summer more than Strawberry Shortcake. As a kid my mom would make it each summer and I always looked forward to it. So this week (before the strawberries are gone for the year) I wanted to make sure to include a recipe. I made this one from Martha Stewart last night and it was superb. I even added some sliced, fresh mint leaves on top. Strawberry Shortcake From Martha...
