2013 CSA: Week 25

What a great week to be in the Meat CSA! 2 Bone-in Ribeye Steaks and 2 Halved Chickens Hand-made sausages. And we finally have the first of our fall greens to share too. Baby arugula today and salad mix right around the corner. Look out for Rattlesnake pole beans in your share boxes this week too.

Around the farm, the baby chicks are continuing to grow and cheep cheep a bit louder and stronger every day. We’re already prepping the hi-tunnels for fall transition and continuing to seed cover crops over fields where dearly departed tomatoes, melons and winter squashes gave valiant efforts all year long. We’ve started harvesting and curing sweet potatoes this week as well. And after receiving good feedback on the greens this past week, have included them again in the shares this week.

Big news this week! The winter CSA sign-up is open now. You will be receiving an application in your email. Or you can find it here: WINTER CSA APPLICATION

Here are some changes for the winter:

  1. All CSA members will enjoy a 5% discount on Meat purchases via our online store.
  2. The winter CSA will not deliver to Tallahassee, Eufaula or Dothan.
  3. Deliveries are roughly every other week instead of weekly.

You can find more info on the application linked above. And I’ll be updating the CSA Manual soon with the exact dates for pick-ups between December and March. I know how important scheduling is during the holidays so we’re trying to be really sensitive to that.

Ok, here’s some quick-pics and the weekly menu.

Meat CSA: (call us on Monday by noon for any additional a la carte orders: 229-641-2081 – web orders click here)

2 Bone-in Ribeye Steaks – A griller’s dream. This steak, with the bone-in is a full-flavored, mild textured cut of meat that lends itself well to all types of dry heat cookery.

2 Chicken-halves –  And by Chicken halves, I meant to say Sausage. RIbeyes and sausage this week, not too shabby!

Pasture Raised Eggs: 

Beautiful brown eggs from our own lovely ladies that range freely on certified organic pasture. The eggs are washed, candled and graded fresh for you each week. (Wanna add eggs to your order this week?  Please email me or call our office today: 229-641-2081)

Certified Organic Vegetables:

Arugula OR Malabar Spinach – Young tender Arugula greens! We almost had enough to go around. Good thing we had Malabar Spinach waiting in the wings. 

Sweet Potato Greens – Sweet Potato Greens are a common nutritious addition to meals around the world and especially in Africa. A few different recipes can be found HERE.

Garlic – At least one head of Inchelium Red softneck garlic, an heirloom variety we know you’ll enjoy.

Okra – At least 3/4-1 lb of purple and green okra. Some big, some small and some just right in size.

Basil! – Caprese salads with Jay’s cheese are a summer favorite of mine. Pesto all around!  CLICK HERE FOR AN EASY PESTO RECIPE

Tomatoes OR Eggplant OR Rattlesnake Beans – No dried beans this week. If you don’t get beans, you’ll get a small amount of tomatoes or 1 or 2 eggplant. We just have enough to share with everyone. Fingers crossed for some good rain to help us out by next week.

Peppers – Jupiter and Orion Bell peppers, Cowhorn and Carmens. The coming fall weather should help us see more colors in the peppers too. What beauties!

Mixed Hot peppers – Mostly jalapenos and Cayenne types.  mixed hot peppers are bagged separately for your convenience.

Mint or Marjoram – Mint for mojitos and Marjoram for your Chicken, omelettes, or whatever other culinary adventure awaits. Enjoy!
