Changes to egg pricing, referral bonuses, and some things done.

We are adding in a referral bonus. If you sign up a friend, you can get a week off the price of your share. For example if you have a half-share you will get $25 off and only have to pay for 15 out of 16 weeks for signing up a friend. If you plan to refer more than two friends please let us know.

We are also updating our egg prices to $3.50 for regular size, $4.50 for extra-large and those who are signed up for a CSA share get $0.50 off making it $3 for regular and $4 for extra-large.

 Got our cabbages, kales, brocolis and so forth planted a few days ago.
Also started on the project of replacing an old livestock barn. Maybe we'll have a barn raising day later?

Chive blossom vinegar

To make chive blossom vinegar we trim off the flowers from chives and soak them in vinegar for a couple weeks. The chive flowers infuse the vinegar with a garlicky flavour and a beautiful pink hue. This can be used as a flavoured vinegar for salad dressings, dips, to sprinkle on fish or fries, or for a bowl of cucumber slices.


A ready batch.


Clean jars.


The light shining through the pink vinegar. So pretty.

Here's a recipe for a vinaigrette made with chive blossom vinegar.

Strawberries

We're expecting to have extra berries after our CSA sharers have gotten theirs. If you would like a crate or two for making jam, or maybe just a couple boxes for snacking, please give us a call. They are $4.50/box, $54/crate.

Red, green, and savoy cabbage

Cabbage red or green is not just good for jigg's dinner (also known as 'corned beef & cabbage' or simply 'boiled dinner'), it's great for sauerkraut, roasted vegetables, coleslaw, and stir fry. This yummy quinoa soup recipe uses cabbage and all kinds of other veggies.


Red cabbage-  A great source of vitamin C, vitamin K, and anti-oxidants this cabbage can be shredded in a raw coleslaw, chopped for a soup, or shredded into sauerkraut or kimchi.


Savoy cabbage - This round cabbage is vitamin and fiber rich. You can roast it, make cabbage rolls,  even put it in soup . Read more about the health and nutritional benefits here.
