A couple recipes

Have been trying to find the time to put this up. Here's a few more food pictures!

 Pork chop with mashed red and sweet potatoes and a salad on the side with snow peas, green onions, tomatoes.
 Tried the recipe from savoycabbage.org Brown the wedges in a bit of olive oil...
 Then bake them in the oven for 20 minutes at 200...
 Then serve with your CSA Swiss chard and potatoes! Was pretty good. I ate it twice again with leftovers re-fried.
 We also were able to make a simple coleslaw out of the savoy with some poppy seed dressing and shredded carrots.
To make use of several of the CSA ingredients I used this recipe for Swiss chard and corn pizza from Sweet Sugar Bean. Turned out very delicious. Just used a pre-made flatbread for the crust so didn't need as much cooking time. Also added some meat, because we like meat.

RJR Farm New Direction

After over 6 consecutive years of our direct-to-your-door delivery CSA model we are taking a new direction with RJR 100 Acre Farm. We will no longer be offering the CSA. We are working on developing a new plan for the farm. Thank you to all of our customers who have shared in the land's bounty with us over the past years. We look forward to continuing these relationships that we have built as your friends and local farmer.

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.
