News from Our Growers:

RnR Farms: we are cranking out the lettuce even as the weather turns warm. We have a huge selection of all types of lettuces: green and red leaf, romaine, butterhead, and even some kale. And we are in the middle of salad week on our Facebook page where we are sharing tips and recipes for all things lettuce!

Here is one of our delicious recipe…Southwest Chicken Salad

1 bag RnR Farms Red Leaf
1-2 grilled chicken breast
1/2 can of corn (drained)
1/2 can of Black beans (drained)
1 cup of grape tomatoes (halved)
1 Cucumber (peeled and sliced)
3 oz. Shredded cheese
Avocado and tortilla strips, optional

Assemble salad and use a 1:1 ratio of ranch and your favorite barbecue sauce. Enjoy!

Note: I like to quickly marinate chicken breasts before I grill them. Marinate for 15-30 minutes with 1/4 cup olive oil, a heavy splash of apple cider vinegar, and salt and pepper to your liking.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3Farm): We have early Romaine lettuce, chicory, and microgreens, as well as our delicious nutrient-dense Farmed and Foraged Greens. We also have herbal honey, gourmet mustard, and herbal teas for what ails you!

Green romaine and curly lettuce is coming in strong, as is our chicory! We have chicory leaf, which has a unique, bitter taste that adds a special “kick” to salads, sandwiches, and many other meals. Our bodies need bitter for digestion and other functions, so why not try some that is nutritious?

Add nutrition, texture, and taste to your salad or sandwich with Mustard, Kale, and Turnip Microgreens. There’s just the right amount of bite to get your taste buds’ attention! Microgreens have much higher nutrient levels than the full grown veggies, and work well adding to smoothies, salads, or baked dishes.

You will love our Farmed and Foraged greens. This blend is a great tame & wild hybrid salad complement or substitute, it’s awesome on sandwiches, and it is quite delicious topping a burger or other sandwich. If you tried forage greens you will appreciate the tasty, nutrient dense, blend that will either replace or complement your salad.

Nom Noms Dog Treats: Want to share with you the new additions to our menu. We have new treats size and a new treat flavor.

Now offering the Bite Size mini treat for those small doggies and training treats for pups.

The new flavor is Peanut Butter Banana. We have always made this treat however it is now made with flour instead of oats.

Short Mountain Cultures: Some of our Short Mountain Cultures favorites are back in stock this week! Our kimchi is made with locally grown napa cabbage, purple daikon radishes, green onions, ginger and our chili garlic sauce. ABC tempeh has also returned! Organic adzuki beans, black beans, chickpeas and millet make this delicious soy-free, protein rich tempeh! Our cold and bubbly water kefir and kombucha are also particularly refreshing as the weather heats up! Available by the bottle or half gallon jug (by the way, we take this back to reuse)!

Wedge Oak Farm: New this week: Peach and Fig Fried Pie Filling and Jam….This pie filling and jam is packed with fresh peaches! It also has dried figs that have been soaked in brandy (don’t worry, the brandy cooks off during the long cook time).

Flying S Farms: Red Stem Kale, Swiss Chard, Large head Cabbage, Hakurei Turnips, Salad and Candy Onions, Sour Dough Breads and Friendships Breads
