Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Last Call for 2 Weeks - Fresh Harvest




Market News

Hello!
There are very few green items left, but plenty of carrots and mushrooms. Bread, cheese, eggs and meats are in abundance.

The Market will remain open until Tuesday evening for you to place an order for this week. Next delivery day will be March 20th.

Here is some information on how Fresh Harvest works.
*If you see an item as Sold Out, write in the Comment section at check out that you would like that item if more becomes available. We’ll try our best to add it to your order.
• If you recruit a new customer to Fresh Harvest and they open an account with a $50 deposit, we will credit your account $10 for each new customer who signs up. They will need to tell me your name, so that I can credit your account. Word of mouth has been our best advertising. Any help that you can provide is greatly appreciated.
• Every week, we leave orders at the church for customers who cannot arrive at Trinity before 6pm. This has worked well for those who have difficulty with the 4-6pm window. Please let me know if you need me to leave your order at the church.
• The bag that you receive each week is to be brought back with your next order. We have been negligent in telling new customers how this works. Don’t feel bad if you return multiple bags, it happens all the time.
• We’re into reusing and recycling. Our clean egg cartons, honey jars, paper and plastic bags, berry containers are some of the items that we can reuse. If we can’t reuse the returned items, we’ll recycle them.
• We do guarantee everything that we sell. If you ever have a problem, please let us know and we will credit your account.
• If there are other products or growers that you think should be a part of Fresh Harvest, please let me know.

Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!

If you need to text me, my number is 615-838-0428.

Recipes


Roasted Butternut Squash with Goat Cheese, Pecans, and Maple
Ingredients
1 large butternut squash
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Topping
2 tablespoons maple syrup
pinch cayenne pepper
1 1/2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled (1/3 cup)
1/3 cup pecans, toasted and chopped coarse
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves

1. FOR THE SQUASH: Adjust oven rack to lowest position and heat oven to 425 degrees. Using sharp vegetable peeler or chef’s knife, remove skin and fibrous threads from squash just below skin (peel until squash is completely orange with no white flesh remaining, roughly 1/8 inch deep). Halve squash lengthwise and scrape out seeds. Place squash, cut side down, on cutting board and slice crosswise 1/2 inch thick.
2. Toss squash with melted butter, salt, and pepper until evenly coated. Arrange squash on rimmed baking sheet in single layer. Roast squash until side touching sheet toward back of oven is well browned, 25 to 30 minutes. Rotate sheet and continue to bake until side touching sheet toward back of oven is well browned, 6 to 10 minutes. Remove squash from oven and use metal spatula to flip each piece. Continue to roast until squash is very tender and side touching sheet is browned, 10 to 15 minutes longer.
3. FOR THE TOPPING: While squash roasts, stir maple syrup and cayenne together in small bowl.
4. Transfer squash to large serving platter. Drizzle maple mixture evenly over squash. Sprinkle with goat cheese, pecans, and thyme and serve.

Siloam Springs, AR:  Just Kidding - Produce is Available!


Farmer Tom from Opossum Hollow just let me know that because the sun is out and shining things warmed up enough that he had to uncover the plants. He just listed some inventory for this week – all your favorites ARE available!

Let’s hope the weather decides to behave like spring and produce will be available all the time!

And remember, our products are produced by our local friends and neighbors, the farmers of Arkansas. Buying locally helps the planet, keeps the money close by, and is fresher than anything you can buy at the corporate stores.

Market News

March has really come in like a lion this year, with more rain, storms, and later this week several nights of deep freeze. The low Tuesday night is forecast to get down to 24 here in Athens, so if you’ve started gardening be sure to protect all your plant babies. All of the flowers and buds on the fruit trees should be ok, but they won’t like it one bit. We’re almost certain to get more frosts before things warm up for good, but odds are this’ll be the last deep freeze of the year.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!

Other Area Farmers Markets

Most other area markets have closed down for the season or moved to winter hours. The Athens Farmers Market will return in the Spring. You can catch the news on their website. The West Broad Farmers Market is closed for the season, and you can watch for their return here: http://www.athenslandtrust.org/west-broad-farmers-market/. The Comer Farmers’ Market is open on Saturday mornings from 9am to noon. Check www.facebook.com/comerfm for more information. Washington, GA also has a lovely little Saturday market, running on winter hours now on Saturdays from 1-4pm. Folks to the east can check out the Hartwell Farmers Market, which starts bright and early on Saturday morning from 7am to noon, and Tuesday afternoons from noon to 4pm. You can learn all about them here: www.washingtonfarmersmkt.com. If you know of any other area markets operating, please let me know.

All of these other markets are separate from ALG (including the Athens Farmers Market) but many growers sell at multiple markets. Please support your local farmers and food producers, where ever you’re able to do so!

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest, and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!
