2013 CSA: Week 30

Good news! We have a replacement box truck and we are back on normal delivery schedule. Thank you all so much for your patience and understanding the past few weeks. With only a month left, we’re all hoping for smooth sailing for the home stretch. We’re also hoping that more of you will join us for the winter. Eggs and vegetable shares are still available, which would enable you to get 5% off of any meat orders to your location.

You’ll notice that the new egg cartons came in! Big thanks to Frankie for facilitating the design process on those cartons. Please keep them clean and send them back each week. We’d love to keep using these for a long time. I’ve also heard some feedback asking to be alerted in advance when new sausage varieties are introduced. Jenni writes a regular newsletter that features several of our artisinal products including the hand-crafted sausages. To get on the email list, Please go to our web-page and add your email address to the box at the bottom of the page. Then click “weekly specials” when you’re signing up. If ever you tire of hearing about sausage and pickles and broth, etc (and I can’t imagine that ever happening), then you can unsubscribe via a link within the emails you receive. CLICK HERE for the website.

Finally, with only a month left, I want to remind everyone that as members of the CSA, you also receive a free tour of the farm as well as a lunch for two on any visit to our on-farm restaurant. Thanks to everyone who’ve taken the time to visit with us already.  The door’s open for everyone else, just give us a call first so we’ll be ready for you. 

Here’s some pictures from the week and then we’ll talk over the menu…

 

 

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

Shoulder Roast – TIme to break out the slow-cooker! 3 lbs of grass-fed protein for a great value. Here’s an easy straight forward recipe from the queen of all things domestic: http://www.marthastewart.com/313619/slow-cooker-pot-roast

Party Wings – 2- 2.5 lbs of the best pasture-raised comfort food around. High heat and frying will toughen these wings while cooking, so feel free to try any of these recipes for a tender and moist change of pace: http://www.yummly.com/recipes/tender-chicken-wings

Ground Chicken – 1 lb of quick, easy, deliciousness. Try some taco seasoning for added flavor!
