Farmstand Closed Today - Open Friday & Saturday!

Posted 10/16/2014 8:38am by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Heavy Rains and Thunderstorms are causing us to close today, Thursday October 16th. Let's Regroup With Vigor on Friday and Saturday, predicted to be warm and gorgeous. 

  • Friday we are open from 12 to 6 and we are joined by Jordan Brothers Seafood Truck from 2pm to 6pm.
  • Saturday we are open from 10am to 2pm

There is something for everyone at the stand these days. Fall certainly makes you want to make an outing to pick apples and pumpkins. But you can't live on apples alone!!! We have real food for you to eat! White Barn Farm needs you to eat our vegetables!!

Veggie List:

Cooking Greens: Bok Choy, three varieties of Kale, green or rainbow Swiss Chard, Broccoli Raab, bunches of Spinach, and Escarole

Salad Greens: Frisee, Escarole, Arugula, and Head Lettuce. you can even make a yummy salad with Bok Choy!

Salad Fixins: sweet peppers, tomatoes ripened off the vine, carrots, kohlrabi, radishes, beets

Roasting Veggies: pink, blue, and golden potatoes, celery root, carrots, kohlrabi, fennel, onions, beets, winter squash of all kinds, broccoli, 

For Soups: Leeks, Potatoes, Celery Root, Carrots, Broccoli, Onions, Garlic, Winter Squash

For Slaws: Napa Cabbage, Green, Gnome and Red Cabbage, Kohlrabi, Carrots, Broccoli, Radishes, Fennel, and Onions

Some dishes I have had a hankering to make are: 

Baked Pasta with Roasted Winter Squash. Mix Roasted, Pureed Squash into a homemade mac and cheese and bake until bubbly on the sides and crispy on top. Finish with sizzled sage leaves if you're feeling fancy.

Celery Root and Potato Puree. Peel and cube equal parts potato and celery root, boil in salted water, drain when fork tender. Leave the steaming roots in the colander with the pot's lid over them while you melt some butter and half and half in the pot. Return the veg to the the pot, mash, salt and pepper (white pepper if you want to be deluxe), taste and adjust until perfect. This really gives mashed potatoes a special flare that even strict meat and potato folks enjoy.

I so highly recommend Martha Stewart's Seasonal Produce Recipe Guide and our own recipe page on www.whitebarnfarm.org

We have lots of little pumpkins and bunches of popcorn for you to decorate with and even some bumpy gourds grown by a local gardener.

This weekend will be the last week for fresh flowers. We keep thinking they must be done, but then a warm week like this one makes them impossible to ignore! Pick up some mid-October local color!

Yoga in the barn continues this Saturday and next Saturday - after that the farmstand is taking over the barn. Yoga with Patty is $13. Bring a mat, water, and dress in layers according to the weather. No need to pre-register.

This coming week is the last week for the Boxed CSA and the last week of our regular weekday hours. Saturday, October 25th, is our Harvestween Celebration at the farmstand, which will include our regular farmstand, Jordan Brothers Seafood, crafters, dressing up and merriment - more details to follow.

We move into the Barn on Halloween! October 31 - December 20 we will be open:

Fridays 12pm to 6pm (Jordan Brothers Seafood 2pm to 6pm) and 

Saturdays 10am to 2pm (Jordan Brothers Seafood 10am to 1pm)

Come see us soon!

Thank you!!!!

Christy, Chris, and the whole crew at White Barn Farm
