Greetings from your veggie caretakers! We have our first succession of green beans! Tasting them as we picked them, we are so excited to include them in this week’s CSA box. They are delightfully sweet and floral, please post comments on your favorite way to prepare them so we can share them with other members.
Our team is gearing up for our CSA dinner extravaganza! If you have any interest or have friends and family that would like to attend please sign up! We need a total head count so that we can properly prepare for your visit. Please sign up on or before Monday, June 16th. This is our first official open house, and we are so excited to meet you and your family!
We are also really excited to announce the creation of a CSA Cookbook, we cannot do this without you! Please send your personal favorite recipes for vegetables that have been included in your CSA share. Once I have all of your responses, I will compile our first annual CSA Cookbook and share it with all of our lovely members. I think this will be the perfect way for all of us to connect over good food and good ideas. Please send as many delicious recipes as you can to my email address: Mary.Bruce@whiteoakpastures.com. I look forward to experimenting with your creations! Please include your full name so that I can give credit to recipes used in our collection!
Have you ever been curious to venture inside a beehive, or learn more about how honey is cultivated? We have the perfect workshop for you! On June 7th our very own Lori Moshman will be leading a class covering hive health, bee maintenance, and nurturing an environment that will encourage pollinators to visit your backyard. If interested please contact our front office for more details!
