First Boxed Winter CSA Share

Posted 10/21/2017 8:02am by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Hey there all of you boxed CSA members! 

Thanks for all of your support this season! Welcome to our winter boxed CSA. We hope pick-up went smoothly today. As a reminder, pick-up for the winter CSA shares will be on Fridays from 2-6 p.m. in the barn. 

Here are the dates for the 4 additional pick-ups this season: 11/3, 11/17, 12/1, 12/15. 

And now on to this week's box! You've got: 

  • carrots
  • onions
  • sweet potatoes
  • delicata squash
  • peppers
  • beets
  • swiss chard
  • mixed greens
  • potatoes
  • head of lettuce

We are coming into greens season, so get ready to make some delicious salads! Here are a few ideas to mix up those green salads. Let us know if you've got any favorite combinations! 

It's winter squash time! Delicata squash is one of my favorites. Roast it and eat it with the skin on - so easy! Or try this recipe for Roasted Delicata Squash and Onions

One thing that I am really enjoying is pre-preparing meal bowls for the week. I LOVE this one with farro, beets and sweet potatoes (but you can sub out the farro for wheat berries from the farmstand, too). The combinations are endless and they are filled with nutrients and super filling, too. Some more options for toppings are shredded carrots (or pickled if you have the time), edamame, roasted peppers! 

You'll find some swiss chard in your box this week. It is one of those versatile greens that can be eaten as a green in your salad, sauteed with olive oil and garlic for a simple side, tossed into soups and stews, you name it. Creamed Swiss Chard is another fun idea for a new side dish for one of this week's meals. 

That's it! Go off now and create amazing dishes with this week's box. Keep us posted. We can't wait to hear what you make! 

Also, stay tuned for news on pre-ordering turkeys if you want this season. We'll be sending out an email this weekend. If you haven't subscribed to our email list, you can here

See you in two weeks! Or hopefully before - say hi at the farmstand!
