The Farmers Return! Order Now! Pick up Friday!

Posted 2/8/2018 8:30am by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Hello Everybody! Better late than never  . . . ?

Virtual Winter Market is still happening this week! Order Now!

Your farmers are back from lovely Puerto Rico. We could not have had a better time. We really got to see a lot of different parts of the island, try lots of food and drinks, swim in warm ocean water, snorkel off a boat over a coral reef, jump into lots of swimming pools, swim under a waterfall in a cool river, and even in the bioluminescent bay, where plankton light up like fireflies all around you as you swim at night! We certainly saw signs of the devastation of the hurricane and much of the center of the island is still without power, but all of the coastal tourist areas are up and running and you should absolutely not hesitate to visit this unbelievably gorgeous country. We encountered outrageously nice people - like out of their way kind. As we walked home from a fabulous dinner (& the best margarita i've ever tasted) at a Mexican place in San Juan, we got caught in a flash rainstorm. Chris had Graham on his shoulders and as we approached a stop sign, a woman pulled up, rolled down her passenger window and passed us an umbrella, "for the little boy," she shouted. Imagine! 

  

  

We managed to get an order in from Farm Fresh Rhode Island's "Market Mobile" so we have a fresh supply of Mi Tierra organic corn tortillas, organic dried cranberries, crimini mushrooms, some new cheese selections from Narragansett Creamery (little ciliegine mozzarella balls, the 1.5# tin of ricotta, and a whipped feta/kalamata olive spread), and Beltane Farm goat cheese - plain wasn't available but they did have the Herbs de Provence version, which is excellent as well. 

The happy hens over at Treehouse Farms in Millis and at Birchwold Farm in Wrentham continue to respond to the increased day length with an outpouring of fabulous farm fresh eggs! This is seriously a good winter food. You could make some really nice fresh pasta with these beautiful eggs. Pair that with Narragansett's ricotta and you could have a fun Sunday ravioli or lasagna making session! Our fresh spinach would be perfect in ravioli fillings!

   

White Barn Farm Beets and Carrots are still in abundance! We've got a new batch of certified organic potatoes from Sparrow Arc farm in all different varieties. We'll be harvesting more pea tendrils this afternoon and Mike at Mike's Micros has added Arugula salad and Sunflower shoots to his offerings this week. Make sure to get your green in this week! Farmer Sam is bringing another batch of his gourmet oyster mushrooms. It is just going to be a symphony of great food this week!

Pre-orders may be placed up until 7am on Friday. If you don't get a pre-order in, feel free to stop in during pick-up hours (12pm to 6pm Fridays) in the right side of the barn. We should have plenty of extra produce, provisions, and meat from the freezer for you to select from. Jordan Brothers Seafood Truck will be there 2pm to 6pm, too! Tell your friends to come check us out!
