Hi members, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We are very grateful to have you all in our lives and as members this season. You are a very important part of the local food system and support the farmers we work with. I’m sure you don’t want to hear about more food, but maybe as Tuesday and Wednesday rolls around, you will be more ready. Recipes will follow, I just wanted to get this preview out so you can plan. Remember this list is subject to change. I will do my best to let you know of any changes.

And we will be taking orders for Christmas Trees and Wreaths!

Hi members, We are so excited to start our Fall CSA next week. Below is a preview for what’s in the share this week. Remember this is what we think you will get, it may switch around, and I will post any changes on our Facebook page.

Polyface turkeys – Its time to reserve your turkey for the holidays. Turkeys are $5.75/lb and are available in 12-14 lbs, 14-16 lbs, 16-18 lbs and 18-22 lbs.  You can order your turkey and pay $20 deposit thru your dashboards. After ordering,email what size range you want, and if you want it Thanksgiving week or before the winter holidays, and we will do our best to match you up. Balance will be due upon delivery (we will email you with balance due amount.) I will also have other holiday meats available: pork, lamb, beef and bison roasts/lamb/leg etc. We can also get oysters/clams. Email me with your interest.

Let me know if you have questions or concerns.

Happy Cooking!

Produce

Meats
2 bison steaks – Here’s a primer on how to cook grass-fed primer – read this before you cook it, especially if you haven’t cooked grass-fed bison before. Make balsamic and herb bison steak salad.

Bread – Prairie Grain (assorted) – grilled tomato, basil and goat cheese sandwiches

Cheese – hard aged Goat – double goat cheese salad with tomatoes and cukes- you’ll need soft goat cheese also (or just omit), so if in DC, visit Mr Peachy, our Amish farmer friend down the Farmer line at Eastern Market.

Yogurt – How to make Greek style. Here’s a video on how easy it is. I usually line a strainer with a clean tea towel,  put it in a saucepan and put the lid on it.  You can strain it for a long time, and make yogurt cheese, which you can use in place of cream cheese. Use your left over whey in smoothies, or to ferment veggies with. Pets love it. It is also great to cook with yogurt – I use it to replace sour cream and ricotta cheese in my recipes.
