Raise the Wreath!

Posted 11/30/2017 5:08pm by christy kantlehner.

Spread the Word! We must be heard! The farmstand is still open until December 23rd.

Fridays 10-6, Saturdays and Sundays 10-4!
*seafood truck* Fridays 2-6, Saturdays and Sundays 10-2.
 
This Friday Night! Raise the Wreath! We're selling hot cider and fresh baked pumpkin bread to add to the festive ambiance! So put on your best leg warmers and ear muffs and join us! 
Farmer Chris will help you choose your tree and you can pick out a wreath, too!

Grab your shopping bags! It's time to try some winter veggies. There are not tons of green greens at this time of year, but we do have some red ones! Radicchio and Red Cabbage are lovely salad ingredients!

There are lots of dense roots that can be eaten raw - if chopped, sliced, shredded, julienned, or spiralized right! I'm talking about winter radishes (Daikon or Watermelon Radish), Beets, Celery Root, & Carrots.

Then there are slaws to make with cabbage, sugarloaf white radicchio, radishes, apples, kohlrabi, bok choy . . . and more beets, celery root, and carrots!

or bring a little zing by making a quick radish pickle or a marinated beet!

And of course, of course, there is plenty of warm and filling comfort food to roast or steam or mash or put in a stew:

  • Potatoes
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Winter Squash
  • Rutabaga Fluffy Yellow Turnip
  • plus, (you guessed it!), Beets, Carrots, and Celery Root!

And the addition of alliums is always awelcome! Leeks, Garlic, Shallots, Yellow and Red Onion - all available.

We all missed Jordan Brothers Seafood Truck last weekend during their much deserved holiday break, but they are back! So pick up some seafood for a quick and healthy supper.

Sheldonville Roasters has restocked us well with coffee beans. Franklin Honey is bringing 1 lb, 2 lb, and 8 oz jars (great for gifting) of their local, raw honey. Lauren's lovely Franklin Honey bee-based soaps will be available beginning Friday as well. Beautiful Day granola is on sale this week -  pair with Narragansett Creamery yogurt and a dash of Harms Family Farm maple syrup and you're golden!
