Tasty and Healthy Newsletter

Thanks for visiting us last week, here on the blog, and at our various locations. Did you shop til you dropped last week-end? We hope you enjoyed your celebration. (Do you like the gentle snow-fall on our pages to help bring on the Christmasy feel?) 

I LOVE this photo of Joann. She had just harvested an amazing bunch of Bok Choy. How gorgeous these plants are, and so wonderfully nutritious and versatile!

More recipes for Bok Choy are this coming week. Our "After Thanksgiving" turkey soup was especially delicious after adding chopped Bok Choy! Tomorrow we're making a new recipe for "Bok Choy Soup" (did you try our Collard soup recipe?)

We have some special treats for you this week: an assortment of Pesticide-Free Greens and lots of goodies! Are you a baker? Do you make Sweet Potato Pie? We have the best ever super large sweet potatoes for you! If you haven't made a sweet potato pie before, try this recipe at All Recipes.com. The huge Sweets are $1.25 each.

Please scroll down to see other recipes we've added this week.

This is what we brought home today (YUMMMMMM):

All the special dates for December may be seen on our Calendar (click the tab above).

Monday - we will be at the Cloverleaf location a little later than usual. If you would like any of the pesticide-free greens, please phone to reserve them, so that we know to bring them with us.

Friday - Rolo will be at the Spring Hill location. If you would like any of the pesticide-free greens, please phone to reserve them, so that we know to bring them with us.

Saturday - Rolo and Joann will be at the Hernando County Farmers Market on Hwy 19 with nearly 80 other vendors! Come browse, shop, and visit with your neighbors - it's an all 'round enjoyable time. You'll also be supporting local businesses by visiting their booths. If you would like any of the pesticide-free greens, please phone to reserve them, so that we know to bring them with us.

Saturday - Gran'ma Angie and Nana Phyllis will be at the Produce Barn until 6PM. Fresh Cut Pesticide-free Greens will be eagerly awaiting you in their little wading pool.

Because we are growing a large variety of Greens this winter, we will be harvesting Greens in a rotational manner. We will do our best to keep you informed of which Greens are being harvested, but if you need special orders, please phone the farm. We will do everything possible to accommodate your requests when special orders are made. 

This week's greens include:
  • Turnips with Greens ($2.25)
  • Mustards  ($4.00)
  • Collards ($4.50)
It is our greatest pleasure serving you, and bringing you the freshest, healthiest produce possible at the best prices, for your family's dining enjoyment. Thanks for always being supportive and encouraging.
