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

It's been a quiet few weeks on the farm as we've been home spending time with our families over the holidays.  On New Year's Day (and Galen's 1st Birthday) we visited the animals and fed them a special treat of carrots.  Galen would "taste" each one first to make sure it was perfectly sweet!  We hope you all enjoyed sweet holidays.  Here's to a wonderful 2011 growing season!
