Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Fresh Harvest for March 3rd




Market News

Hello!

When I looked ahead at the forecast for the next Fresh Harvest delivery and saw sunny skies and no rain, I thought hallelujah. After closer inspection, the high for Wednesday was only going to be in the 30s. All is good, there are hand, feet and ear warmers. The weather was warm and dry enough this week for us to begin weeding the 2000 strawberry plants. This is very fascinating work and since you have to be on your knees, you get to build up those muscles behind your knees or whatever is back there. Feel the burn! Hopefully, it will be a good berry season. I did post before and after weeding photos from last year on our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/Fresh-Harvest-LLC-196487000365127/

Bear Creek Farms has a special on Petite Filets in the Beef Category for $6.19 a package. Here’s the description: Bill and I love this cut. Just for 2. A miniature version of the tenderloin. Either cook whole or cut into small medallions.
In the Cheese category, Bloomy Rind has a great variety of cheeses and other specialty items.
March and early April are the slowest months for veggies, perhaps we’ll get lucky with an early spring.
If an item sells out, be sure to write in the Comment section what you would like if more becomes available.

We have plenty of eggs, granola, honey, and coffee.

The Hemp Honey has been added to the Market page. If you would like to learn more about CBD, here is a link: https://intellicbd.com/
TruBee’s Hemp Honey is 100% pure raw honey with full spectrum hemp extract. Serving size: 1/2 tsp, 24 servings in a jar

Deliveries will continue to be every other week. The next delivery will be Wednesday, March 20th. You have until Tuesday night to place your order.
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.

Magney Legacy Ridge Farm:  March 2019 CSA NEWS


Dear CSA-ers,

Just a friendly reminder, there will be no CSA deliveries through the month of March. This is our transition season when we do a lot of planting and farm infrastructure improvements. This past week we have begun working to expand an existing greenhouse to accommodate more planting, which means a broader variety of vegetables for you! It’s been a lot of fun picking out seeds and we can’t wait to share our successes. The CSA online market, ( https://magneyfarm.locallygrown.net/market ) will remain open through this March with the two discounted main season share options open. If you have any friends or neighbors who might be interested in our CSA delivery program, we invite you to direct them to us. As our current customers and extended team members, your word-of-mouth continues to be one of the most important ways our business grows. We love connecting healthy food to the people who enjoy it. Families and communities bond over food, and it is so rewarding to see this at work. Thanks so much for being a part of our community, and we look forward to seeing you again on the week of April 4th!

Sincerely,
The Magney Legacy Ridge Farm Team

Foothills Market:  The Market is Open!


(This is a repost, but everything is still the same.,.)

Every dreary week brings spring that much closer, when the sun will shine and fresh green things will grow. Ah, daydreams…..

But, until then, Foothills Market is trying to fill the gap. There are a few hardy greens that can make it through the colder weather, but quantities are limited, so shop early. Don’t forget to check back later in the the week, though, as growers may update their listings based on how things seem to be growing.

We also still have plenty of fresh, locally-grown meat – beef, pork, and lamb – and eggs. And some fresh, homemade baked goods might be just the thing for a dreary winter day.

Shop the market between now and 5:00 p.m. Wednesday. Click the “Place your order” button to complete your order, and we’ll have your items ready for pickup on Thursday afternoon.

Eat something fresh this week!
