WTVR Channel 8 Richmond traveled with the FarmBus on 12/22/20 as we distributed some veggie bags to families in the East End of Richmond. We are grateful to all our CSA members and our customers. May you all know peace and great health in the coming year.
We are pleased to announce that we are partnering with a local chef and have added gourmet Prepared Meals using fresh local ingredients (the same as in your CSA!) to the menu and they are available to order for pickup/delivery next week. Deadline to order online is Friday at 5pm for the following week. If you miss the deadline and want to order, email and I can place the order for you. They are also for sale in Richmond at the Farm to Family Market, 2817 Mechanicsville Turnpike, RVA 23223. You do NOT have to be a current member to order.
This week’s meals come from Richmond, VA Chef Michael Hayes (Awful Arthur’s and Chef Mike’s “Your Craving Is My Command). Meals are frozen and ready to heat. All are single serve portions this week. We are working on family sized options for next time.
1. Braised lamb shank with sweet potato hash and sweet carrot/ honey scallions. GF – $18
2. Meat loaf with roasted golden beets and garilc chive rutabega/potato mash – $14
3. Marinated tofu with spinach pie and veg fried rice (Vegan contains soy) – $12
4. Pasta with ramps, mixed mushrooms (oyster, maitake and shiitake) with roasted garlic oil. (Vegetarian/contains egg and dairy) – $12
I do not yet have the menu for the following week – but once I have it, I will be sending it out. If you are getting a share the week of the 14th/15th – you need to wait for next week’s menu, and your order deadline will be Friday 4/10.

We are looking forward to working with Chef Michael and we appreciate your feedback! Let us know if you have special requests!
We were profiled in this lovely writeup from Lincoln Now back in December, when they were on their roadtrip in the Fall. They had a sharp red Navigator, which we were happy to fill up with a Grab and Go box and there was lots of room for pumpkins and squash.
