Fresh Harvest for A New Year!




Market News

Hello!

Welcome Back! We hope this New Year 2018 is off to a great start for you and yours! Thanks for starting off the year right by supporting small farms, organic agriculture, and small businesses!

We have survived some record cold temperatures. Farmers report the hoophouse crops managed to squeak through, a bit beat up but otherwise alive! It is amazing how resilient plants are.

The cold weather slows down plant growth quite a bit, however, so for that reason* we are switching to an EVERY OTHER WEEK schedule! * So that means stock up as you can on meat, eggs, and our storage vegetables! Even the greens are so fresh and well taken care of they have a very long fridge life. So make sure you order enough for 2 weeks!

Our next delivery date after this Wednesday will be Wednesday, January 24th

Thanks so much to all of you for your sock donations! They were delivered to The Nashville Rescue Mission, just in time for our deepcold spell. Over 150 pairs of socks in all! I am sure you can imagine how grateful many people were for the added warmth.

We are really excited for the year ahead, and hope to continue to serve you in the best way possible! We are always open to feedback and questions. It helps us to be better at what we do, so we appreciate you letting us know what you love or what some concerns may be!

You may have noticed this new weblog format – hopefully it makes it easier to read on your phones! Let us know!

Thanks for all your support – we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!

Butternut Squash and Kale Torte

A “torte” sounds fancy, but really this is just a layered casserole of yumminess!

1 tbsp. olive oil
½ small butternut squash (about 1 lb)
1 medium red onion
1 small bunch kale
Kosher salt and pepper
1 medium Yukon gold potato (about 6 oz)
6 oz. thinly sliced provolone cheese (from the deli counter)
1 plum tomato
¼ c. grated Parmesan (1 oz)

Heat oven to 425°F. Oil a 9-in. springform pan. Arrange half the butternut squash in the bottom of the pan, in concentric circles. Top with half the onion, separating the rings. Top with half the kale, drizzle with half the oil and season with 1/4 tsp salt. Top with the potatoes and half the provolone cheese.
Top with remaining kale, drizzle with the remaining oil and season with 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper. Top with the remaining onion, tomatoes and provolone. Arrange the remaining squash on top and sprinkle with the Parmesan.
Cover with foil, place on baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake until the vegetables are tender and the top is beginning to brown, 8 to 10 minutes more.

Hello!

Happy Hanukkah!

Thanks to all who brought socks for our sock drive for The Nashville Rescue Mission! We seriously believe we have the best community of customers in the world! Good clean socks are one of the most requested items for donation at homeless shelters. This year we ask that when you pick up your order to please bring us a pair of good, warm, cozy socks – either new or only slightly used. We will deliver them before Christmas to The Nashville Rescue Mission.

It has been a cold, cold week, but the winter loving greens in the hoophouse have survived and will be all the sweeter for it! We also have a nice supply of hearty storage crops – the winter squashes and sweet potatoes – to round out your meals. Eat healthy this winter, and keep the immune system strong!

A reminder that our last delivery before Christmas will be on Wednesday, December 20th. We will not be delivering Wednesday December 27th or January 3rd. We will resume delivery on Wednesday, January 10th.

Thanks again for all your support, and we will see you on Wednesday!

Hello!

We are heading into our winter season – although it is hard to tell from the beautiful sunny warm days we are having. The Holidays are fast approaching, and we wanted to let you know our plans!

This year we ask that when you pick up your order to please bring us a pair of good, warm, cozy socks – either new or only slightly used. We will deliver them before Christmas to The Nashville Rescue Mission. We have such a large, generous, community of customers, and we want to be able to share all that love with those in need, so please help us out and make sure to donate a pair (or more!) of socks! Thank you ahead of time!

Our last delivery before Christmas will be on Wednesday, December 20th. We will not be delivering Wednesday December 27th or January 3rd. We will resume delivery on Wednesday, January 10th.

Thanks for all your support!
