News from some of Our Growers:

Oakview Farm:
This week we have fresh baby kale, arugula, chicken/duck eggs, and a variety of jams on the market this week! Our newest “winter” jam is made with the rosemary in our garden that refuses to go dormant! It’s our Cranberry Rosemary Tangerine Marmalade and it’s delicious! Each small jar of jam has a great tangerine and cranberry flavor, with undertones from the rosemary. Give it a try on toast, grilled pork, crackers and biscuits.

Carole Herbs (CS3 Farm):
We have a new batch of ginger fig shrub concentrate, as well as winter lettuce and pea shoot microgreens.

Use our shrub concentrates as a refreshing drink, mixer, or salad dressing. Our winter lettuce mix is a blend of soil-grown seasonal greens, including a variety of lettuces and baby kale, spinach, radicchio, endive, and other tender green leaves, as available. Top them with fruit and nuts, some sauerkraut, or your choice of dressing. Our pea shoot microgreens are soil grown and sun – fed in the new greens growing area of our home. They do well on sandwiches and in salads or even stir fry and have way more nutrients than most other green vegetables.

We have Chocolate Swiss Roll, Cinnamon Rolls, Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls, Blueberry Lemon Yeast Rolls, banana breads and pumpkin breads (with the option of nuts or not), bagels (plain, cinnamon raisin, blueberry, and everything), donuts (cake and yeast), cheese Danishes, pies (chocolate fudge, pecan, chocolate chip pecan, pumpkin and sweet potato), cookies, granola and protein bars, breads, and fruit scones.
