The year ahead

We are very excited for this year we have a lot of different vegetables that we have selected for their nutritional value, flavour, antioxidants, and colours.  See a full list below of what we have planned for 2016.

 We now have an egg CSA $4.00 for a dozen eggs ($64 for 16 weeks), if you want a half dozen $2.00 ($32 for 16 weeks).


We still have spots left in our CSA. Sign up here. We accept many forms of payment and you can discuss payment plans with us. We also introduced new CSA sizing we now have

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.
