GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR WINTER SHARE

Your winter share should last you several weeks if stored properly.  Obviously, the kale and broccoli are freshly harvested and should be eaten right away! Click on the crop name above to find a detailed description, links to recipes, and storage tips.  Most root crops can be stored in a plastic bag in the fridge.  However, sweet potatoes should not be refrigerated! 

NEWS FROM THE FARM

We've spent the past few weeks cleaning up the barns and finalizing paperwork from the 2010 season.  December is often spent "catching up" on things we were too busy to get to during the year.  We're looking forward to celebrating Christmas and New Years with our families- this year being an especially exciting one as it's baby Galen's first Christmas, and a double 1-year birthday and New Year's celebration! 

Here is your baby farmer hard at work harvesting the red kale...

Wishing you all peace and joy in the New Year!
