Maple Syrup, Lavender, Cucumbers, Cabbage . . .

Posted 6/28/2013 1:20pm by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Baby Fennel, Fresh Onions, Napa, Lettuce, Scallions, Kohlrabi, Carrots, Zucchini, Fresh Flowers and more!

Friday Farmstand is Open! 2pm to 7pm. Jordan Brothers Seafood is here. 

The farm is in full swing and we are excited for you all to try out our new driveway since it has rained.  There is a great bounty of produce so take a moment to stop by and pick out something that will make your family wonder how you made such a delicious meal!!! Good ingredients make simple food taste spectacular.

If you are uncertain of what to do with some of this bounty (top example: kohlrabi) we have a very useful cookbook for sale at the farmstand. From Asparagus to Zucchini was put together by a consortium of CSAs in Madison, Wisconsin. It is arranged alphabetically by vegetable and gives a brief overview of each veg and then a couple pages of easy, yummy recipes. It's $19.95 at the farmstand.

We just got in a batch of Maple Syrup from Liberty Farm in Poultney, Vermont. Our wonderful friends, James and Sarah Elworthy have an organic dairy farm and a sugarbush (the technical term from the stand of sugar maples you harvest sap from). Pints are $10 and the larger jugs are $22. Treat those kids to some Saturday or Sunday morning pancakes and waffles with real maple syrup. That reminds me - Wild blueberries are ripening! I found ripe lowbush and highbush blueberries yesterday and they were super delicious. Find 'em before the birds do! (or visit Cook's Valley Farm in West Wrentham - Nate says strawberries are fading but raspberries are on and blueberries are starting).

Happy Fourth of July! The 4th falls on a Thursday this year. We think it's silly to have our regular farmstand hours (2pm to 7pm) so we will be open in the morning: 10am to 2pm on Thursday, July 4th.

My extremely talented stepmom, Elizabeth Gibbs, made beautiful cards from paintings she did based on our vegetables. She designed a little barn stamp and printed a recipe on the back of each veggie card. We finally were able to print them and get them packaged in farmstand safe little plastic envelopes. They are $2.50 each. I'm starting to realize that you could put together a pretty nice gift package from our farmstand: syrup, coffee, cookbook, flowers, card, and maybe even some fresh veggies!
