CSA Update


Thanks to all those who joined us on Sunday at our Annual CSA Party. Unfortunately, we needed to cancel the day on Saturday due to the inclement weather, but Sunday was just beautiful!

As usual, the Moon Dogs (Sue and Paul McKenna) contributed their talents and provided wonderful entertainment into the evening- thank you so much!


We are having our Harvest Full Moon Pot Luck on Sunday October 4th, beginning at 6 pm. This will be our last get together of the season. Please mark your calendars to join us then!



There is still room to join us this Saturday:

Pickling/Fermentation Workshop – Saturday September 19th- Join us for this workshop to learn about how to preserve your harvest. We will cover the differences between pickling and live fermentation and show you how to do both!  Cost $20 Time- 11 am



We are once again stocked with Jeremiah's Chickens- they are in the freezer.


We have a lot of Sweetwater Bread and Cookies in the freezer. Please help us use these up so we can order more fresh ones. The breads are just fine when defrosted and toasted slightly.



Glazed Turnips and Carrots

This recipe from will help you utilize those delicious turnips- both the white and red variety!

1 pound baby turnips (about 2 pounds with greens attached) or regular turnips

3/4 pound baby carrots (about 2 pounds with green attached)

1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/2 teaspoon sugar

Trim turnips and carrots, leaving about 1/2-inch stems if green were attached, and peel if desired. If using regular turnips, peel and cut into 1-inch pieces. In a steamer set over boiling water steam turnips and carrots separately, covered, until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Vegetables may be prepared up to this point 1 day in advance and kept covered and chilled.

In a large heavy skillet cook vegetables in butter with sugar and salt and pepper to taste over moderately low heat, stirring, until heated through and glazed, about 4 minutes.


See you around the farm!
