Weekly Meal Plan:
The last week of our 2014 CSA season has arrived! We really can’t thank you enough for being a part of our 16th Growing Season! We truly couldn’t do it without the support of our members. It’s been an amazing season – the farm has grown as we’ve added to our crew and membership and we’re looking forward to next year already. Onto the vegetables! In this week’s share we have more Brussels sprouts, lacinato kale, and two varieties of squash! We’re also including a cone-shaped cabbage, the outer leaves are great for cabbage rolls, and the inner leaves can be used for a sauté or slaw. We couldn’t help but include more of the beautiful fall radishes we’ve been harvesting. Include some in the Root Vegetable Gratin or try pickling them to enjoy later. Don’t forget you can still extend your share of the harvest with a winter share or early renewal. Winter shares are going fast, but there are still some available. Read on for more info about early sign-up discounts (this month only!), winter shares (sign-up ends soon!), and Thanksgiving turkeys from our friends at Good Life Farm!

We don’t raise any livestock – but friends of ours do! We’re putting in a plug for our friends at The Good Life Farm
– they raise Certified Organic pasture fed turkeys. And they’ll deliver them to some of our Winter CSA pickup locations on the same day as your pickup. There is a $40 deposit to reserve your turkey. If you are interested please contact Melissa Madden from the Good Life Farm directly, her email is Melissa@thegoodlifefarm.org
