McMinnville Locally Grown:  Oops! I forgot!


Better late than never they say – I have been battling a cold and just plain forgot to open the market!

Cedar Grove Farm:  Cedar Grove Farm CSA Availability for February 28


Dear Friends and Neighbors,

The winter squeeze continues, but we are still hanging on with some tasty veggies. Preparations continue for the spring and summer gardens. We are erecting a new high-tunnel, hoop house that will be planted with early tomatoes and other treats. We have received a shipment of 5000 seeds of a variety of corn that we haven’t grown before, but that comes highly recommended. There will plenty for all this year.

And, for a little business – we are accepting memberships for the 2013 Spring/Summer CSA. If you have an account just let us know that you are coming back. The CSA provides Cedar Grove Farm with the finances to thrive and to deliver a bigger and better product for you. It’s what we love to do.

The market is open. Hope you find something you like.

Regards, Farmer Jay

Recipes


Crustless Quiche, Loaded with Greens
from the blog Alexandra’s Kitchen

5 large eggs
3 T. all-purpose flour
1 cup crème fraîche
1 cup whole milk
1 tsp. kosher salt
½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 T. fresh thyme, finely chopped
1 to 3 cups – depending on your preference – uncooked coarsely chopped kale or chard or mustard greens, etc

1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
2. Place 1 egg and the flour in a large bowl and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the remaining 4 eggs until blended.
3. In a medium bowl, whisk the crème fraîche until smooth. Whisk in the milk. Whisk in the salt, pepper and thyme (or other herb).
4. Pile your greens into a pie plate. Pour the egg mixture over the greens, then press the greens down with a spatula so they are submerged in the custard. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 325ºF and bake until the filling is just set, about 30 minutes longer. The center of the quiche should still feel slightly firm, rather than liquidy, when touched. Let cool on a wire rack for at least 20 minutes to allow the custard to set up, so that it will slice neatly. It can be served warm or at room temperature. To serve a fully cooled quiche warm, cover it with aluminum foil and reheat it in a 325ºF for about 15 minutes.

Market News


Hello!

It will be good to see you this week! We have lots of good stuff for you! Please note that we will be on an every other week delivery schedule, so our next delivery after this week will be on Wednesday, March 13th. Stock up on eggs, meats and bread for the weeks ahead!

Turnbull Creek Farm has opened up orders for the Bouquet of the Week special. The price of bouquets will be going up this summer, so now is a good time to get in on a reduced price – this is a treat for current customers only! How it works is that starting in May, the recipient gets 12 weeks of bouquets. Tally is also now planning flowers for weddings and special events, so if you have an event this upcoming season, think locally grown, organic flowers!

New this week is Caney Creek Farm from Chapel Hill, TN and their pastured lamb. These are Katahdin sheep, which are known for their superior meat. You can read about their farm and product at
www.caneycreekfm.com.

Earthwind Botanicals has lots of great products up this week. The soaps smell so wonderful, are all natural, and are a great way to beat the winter doldrums.

We really appreciate your support and understanding during this winter season.
We look forward to seeing you this Wednesday!

John and Tallahassee

Madison GA:  The Market is open!!!!


See everyone Wed!!!

Conway, AR:  Opening Bell


Greetings Conway Locally Grown Community,

I think the weather has been the main topic of several of my market opening emails recently, but the weather is so central to a farmer’s thoughts and concerns (one could compare the farmer-weather relationship to that of an investment banker and the variations of the stock market) that I have to mention the recent meteorological activity at Falling Sky Farm. Thursday morning began with wet snow, which turned to sleet as the temperature rose slightly, and then to freezing rain – the ugliest, wettest, most miserable weather possible. The ground became covered in a quarter inch of ice, but animals must be tended nevertheless, and the plight of shivering, huddled choates offered me a crash course in impromptu animal shelter construction. A tarp wired to an aluminum gate leaned against two trees and dry hay spread underneath made the little pigs warm, dry, and happy once again, even if setting it up made me chilled and soggy. Freezing rain is just another factor in the enormous list of adversities that can stand in the way of a farmer’s path to success. Supportive communities like Conway Locally Grown help make it all worth the effort.

So renew your support of the some of the toughest and hardest working people anywhere – your local farmers, and celebrate with me another week of good food grown right by good people. The market is now open. Go to conway.locallygrown.net/market to place your order. Hit the checkout button once when you’re finished, and you will receive a confirmation email once your order has been placed. Thanks and have a warm, dry week!
