Brussel Sprouts


Brussel Sprouts are like small cabbages that grow on a stalk. They are high in vitamin A, C, K and fibre more nutritional information here. They have the flavour of broccoli and cabbage combined.

We like to give them to you on the stalk so you can see how they grow - like small trees. You may not have prepared this before so check out this video on how to do it. Just break or cut off the little sprouts and prepare as you wish - steam, broil, braise, bake, stir-fry. Careful not to overcook, they are sort of like broccoli in that they turn nice bright green when cooked properly, then turn brown and mushy when over cooked. This page goes over some different cooking methods.

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.

We made green chile sauce and RJR salsa

We made several batches of salsa and then we had so many green tomatoes we made a few  batches of green tomato chile sauce. We ate the extra salsa still hot yummy.

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.
