Fall Food! Autumn Extravaganza!

Posted 10/5/2018 8:34am by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

I tried to get this letter started yesterday but I could not quite capture the positivity I like to share with our customers. This was all I had: Okay, Weather, spirits are damp. Stop with the pouring rain and continual misting. We are ready for sunshine to warm us up and dry us out!  On a positive note, the new waterproof overalls we purchased this year are being used by even the most reluctant of our employees, even appreciated!

Last weekend was gorgeous and this weekend, at this moment, is predicted to be equally gorgeous! Yippee Hallelujah! 

Now the SUN IS SHINING, WEATHER IS SWEET! The letter continues . . .

Although this is the time for apple-picking and pumpkin-picking and donut-eating, make sure to get your groceries too!

For those who do not need to do the picking, We do have apples at the farmstand: Cortland, Macoun, Macintosh from Fairmount Fruit Farm in Franklin (conventional)

more pumpkins are coming in, along with some of the fancy decorative squashes, from Sparrow Arc Farm in New York. They grow the lovely potatoes we've been having and now will provide certified organic potatoes AND Pumpkins :)

White Barn Farm's ornamental corn, popcorn bunches and mini pumpkins are prime for decorating season too!

We are still producing real foods to enliven your menus - Greens in Particular!!

we've got your hot pepps for homemade chili - cayenne gives great flavor and color

Have you ever made babaganoush - an eggplant dip similar to hummus?

A quick weeknight recipe is Escarole and White Beans - just have a can of cannellini beans and some chicken or veggie stock on hand. or just braise escarole and yellow onions in white wine for a simple side.
 
Thanks for reading, everybody!! Just trying to stay relevant during agritainment season!!
