Last Call - Fresh Harvest




Market News

Hello!
I think that my favorite crop to harvest is potatoes, but only if it’s a good year. You never know what’s under the ground. We dug up about 80 lbs. of Red Gold potatoes today and it was close to perfect. There were lots of potatoes and the ground was ideal for digging. They are now listed on the Market page.

I neglected to update the quantity of Fresh Harvest eggs yesterday. There are now plenty available.

The Market will remain open until Tuesday evening for you to place an order for this week.

Here is some information on how Fresh Harvest works.
*If you see an item as Sold Out, write in the Comment section at check out that you would like that item if more becomes available. We’ll try our best to add it to your order.
*PayPal payments have to be manually added to your account. There will be a delay to crediting your account due to me needing to take time to do the bookkeeping. I also have to go to each account with cash or check payments. These are sometimes delayed by procrastination or being busy. You can still place an order even though it may cause your account to be “overdrawn”. There is no penalty for going into the minus column. Sometimes I’m a little slow in getting to the bank to make deposits, but it eventually happens.
• If you recruit a new customer to Fresh Harvest and they open an account with a $50 deposit, we will credit your account $10 for each new customer who signs up. They will need to tell me your name, so that I can credit your account. Word of mouth has been our best advertising. Any help that you can provide is greatly appreciated.
• Every week, we leave orders at the church for customers who cannot arrive at Trinity before 6pm. This has worked well for those who have difficulty with the 4-6pm window. Please let me know if you need me to leave your order at the church.
• The bag that you receive each week is to be brought back with your next order. We have been negligent in telling new customers how this works. Don’t feel bad if you return multiple bags, it happens all the time.
• We’re into reusing and recycling. Our clean egg cartons, honey jars, paper and plastic bags, berry containers are some of the items that we can reuse. If we can’t reuse the returned items, we’ll recycle them.
• We do guarantee everything that we sell. If you ever have a problem, please let us know and we will credit your account.
• If there are other products or growers that you think should be a part of Fresh Harvest, please let me know.

Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!

Recipes


Grilled Merlot Steak with Sage Butter
4 tablespoons salted butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons minced sage leaves
1 merlot steak (about 1 1/2 pounds)
sea salt
fresh ground pepper
Ahead of time, mix sage into soft butter. Press into a mold or small, straight glass jar and set in fridge to chill.
Set steak on counter and to come to room temperature.
Prepare a hot grill. Allow coals to get hot enough that you can’t hold you hand four inches above them for more than a few seconds. Bank coals to one side of the grill to create a zone of high heat and a zone of indirect heat.
Just before grilling, sprinkle merlot steak on both sides with sea salt and pepper; lightly press seasoning into surface. Set steak over hot coals, grill 2 – 3 minutes, flip, and grill 2 – 3 minutes longer. More steak over indirect heat until internal temperature reaches 130 degrees F for rare or 140 degrees F for medium-rare (steaks pictured are medium-rare). Rest 5 minutes.
With a very sharp chef’s knife, slice steaks into thin (1/4-inch thick) slices, dot with butter, and serve immediately.

Fresh Harvest for June 9th




Market News

Hello!

On the FH Market page, I have condensed the number of Categories. Hopefully, this will make it easier and not harder for you to navigate the Market and find the items that you want. There are subcategories under some of the major Categories like Veggies and the meats that can lead you to where you want to go. I wasn’t sure where to put the compost that is offered by Henosis, but I put it in with the Veggies since compost helps the veggies grow.

Rocky Glade Farms and the Vaughn Brothers are taking a much needed few weeks off. Maybe I can take August off, but I say that every year. It hasn’t happened yet. Blue Honey Farm thinks that they’ll have blueberries and blackberries next week. We’ll see. Bear Creek Farms has Merlot steaks offered this week. The Recipe is Grilled Merlot Steak with Sage Butter. There are lots of Bouquets and straight bunches of Sunflowers and Forget Me Nots.
Herbs are in abundance this time of year.

Growing Together has listed some red potatoes. I will be digging some of my potatoes tomorrow, so I hope to list them once we discover exactly what we have dug.

Dozen Bakery cookies and breads, eggs, granola, honey, and coffee are in abundance.

Hemp Honey and Sorghum are available under Honey.

You have until Tuesday night to place your order.
Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!

Fresh Harvest for June 2




Market News

Hello!

When speaking to my fellow farmers, I try to avoid talking about the weather, but what else is there to talk about? Sure could use some rain or sure is hot, always generates very fascinating conversation. The good news is that most farmers have irrigation and we can withstand the semi-drought that we’re currently experiencing. Freshly harvested potatoes are so much better than what you can get at the grocery. Rocky Glade Farms has two offerings of potatoes this week. It seems to have been the perfect weather this spring for potatoes.

Other new veggie items include purple and green kohlrabi, daikon radishes and fresh basil. There are plenty of cucumbers.

Bountiful Blessings Farm has some beautiful bouquets and straight runs of Sunflowers and Forget Me Nots.

Henosis has listed Golden Oyster Mushrooms which coincides with this week’s Recipe.

Bear Creek Farms has Shish Kabobs, 35 day dry aged filet of sirloin, Hot Dogs and Merlot Steaks all at a reasonable price.

Wedge Oak Farms has a great selection of sausages including: Artisan Bacon Cheddar Chives Links which sounds delicious.

Dozen Bakery cookies and breads, eggs, granola, honey, and coffee are in abundance.

Hemp Honey and Sorghum are available under Honey.

Ruth’s Pashtida
Susie made a great batch of pashtida this morning. This is the very best thing to eat right away and also the best to have in the fridge when you are starving and need something substantial! She makes it differently every time and it’s always good. The basics: eggs, cheese, veggies and a 9×13 pan. This morning, Susie cooked an onion, a red pepper, and a huge bunch of kale (stems removed). She squeezed out any excess moisture from the greens after sautéing. She added some Italian seasoning and salt and pepper. After cooking the veggies, she pulsed them a few times in the food processor. She added the veggies to 12-14 eggs (beaten) and a handful or two of sharp cheddar cheese and then put all that in the baking dish and baked at 350 for about 40 minutes until firm. So good! You can use any kind of veggies and any kind of cheese or a mix of cheeses (cottage, feta, provolone!). Susie says to make sure to credit her friend Ramit’s mom, Ruth, who first showed her how to make it.

Fresh Harvest for May 26th




Market News

Hello!
Fresh Harvest has been selling the Hershberger family’s produce for 15 years. Mattie, Abraham and their 4 children are Amish and farm with horses using no machinery. Somehow they are always the first to have summer crops like squash, cucumbers and beans. They are offering small quantities of those items this week with larger quantities available soon. They beat me again! Two other items of interest from the Hershbergers are snow peas ($5 1/2 lb.) and small heads of Winter Density lettuce – $1.00 a head.

Lots of options on flowers – Bountiful Blessings Farm has some lovely bouquets, plus straight runs of Sunflowers and Forget Me Nots. If asked the color of FMNs, I would have failed the test. We continue to have a mix of peonies that are not only fragrant, but will last at least a week.

Pig and Leaf Farm has listed over 30 plants for sale consisting of tomato, pepper and herb plants. There are options where you can get a mix of different plants.

Since we have so much frigging kale, I’m going to do a rerun of last week’s Recipe or maybe I’m just being lazy. Disregard the making of pashtida this morning. That was last week.

Lots of mushrooms.

Rumor has it that blueberries and blackberries will be available in a couple of weeks.

Meats, eggs, granola, honey, and coffee are in abundance.

Deliveries every week until Thanksgiving Week.

A reminder that pick up will be under the trees unless there is bad weather.

If an item sells out, be sure to write in the Comment section what you would like if more becomes available.

Hemp Honey and Sorghum are available under Honey.

You have until Tuesday night to place your order.

Hello!

We have mucho choices of lettuce this week. In a month or less, it will be in short supply. If there was only a way to cook lettuce and freeze it. I’ll Google it and let you know!

With all the kale offered this week, it would be a great time to try this week’s Recipe: Ruth’s Pashtida.

There’s a new grower with Fresh Harvest this week, Growing Together/The Nashville Food Project. Growing Together supports farmers who arrived in the U.S. as refugees from Burma and Bhutan. Tally (co-founder of Fresh Harvest) is part of the team that teaches the refugees how to farm in Tennessee. This week, they have 5 items in Asian Vegetables plus dill and cilantro.

Delicious carrots(1 or 5 lbs.), golden and red beets are back from Bountiful Blessings. Abraham’s popular green onions have returned.

Bear Creek is running a special on Delmonico Chuck Eye Steaks at $5.49 for two steaks.

Dozen Bakery has their Brown Sugar Shortcakes listed. They go great with the peaches from the Peach Truck who’ll be right beside us. Scroll down a little further in Dozen’s listings for some of my favorite delights.

Bountiful Blessings has added some flowers. They have bouquets at $16 a bunch and Sunflowers for $9. We also have Peonies at $4 a stem.

Looks like the only strawberries available this week will be available at pick up. If there’s more than I expect, I’ll let you know.

Fresh Harvest for May 12th




Market News

Hello!

I hope that everyone has had an enjoyable Mother’s Day. I am sending this email out early tonight. My youngest two daughters and I gave Susie tickets to see Michelle Obama tonight at the Ryman. Hold on there, that’s not true. Actually, Susie stayed on the phone with Ticketmaster for an hour back in December, jumping through hoops to get herself a Mother’s Day present of 4 tickets for tonight. We’re attending the event with her, so that counts as kind of a gift, doesn’t it?

It’s time for a special on Fresh Harvest eggs. We’re reducing the price down to $3 a dozen this week. There are lots of greens available with many options for lettuce. Since there is an abundance of kale and plenty of chorizo, of course the recipe is Pan-Steamed Kale with Chorizo.

The Peach Truck will be at the Fresh Harvest pickup this week and will be with us every Wednesday until late summer. If you receive your order at my farm or Westhaven, I’ll be glad to pick up a bag/box of peaches for you. Typically, it takes a few days for the peaches to ripen. Dozen Bakery has a limited amount of shortcakes listed.

There will be some strawberries available at pick up. If a significant amount shows up, I’ll let you know.

Pig and Leaf Farm is a new grower with Fresh Harvest this year. They produce a variety of products in Summertown. They have listed an option for a Flower Subscription for 6 weeks starting in late May. You can check out their farm at: www.pigandleaf.com

Meats, eggs, mushrooms, granola, honey, and coffee are in abundance.

Deliveries every week until Thanksgiving Week.

A reminder that pick up will be under the trees unless there is bad weather.

If an item sells out, be sure to write in the Comment section what you would like if more becomes available.

The Hemp Honey has been added to the Market page. If you would like to learn more about CBD, here is a link: https://intellicbd.com/
TruBee’s Hemp Honey is 100% pure raw honey with full spectrum hemp extract. Serving size: 1/2 tsp, 24 servings in a jar
