Around The Farm
What’s Happening on the Farm this Week?
This week has brought more new products into the store! We now have Escape Garlic Scape Pesto from Seven Songs Farm and blue tortilla chips from Blue Farm. We also have chickens from Regeneration Farms and an assortment of beef from Levin Family Farms. There are still more new products to come and we can’t wait to share them!
Our product highlight this week is
individually wrapped cookies by Kakookies. Kakookies have real food ingredients,
plant based protein, and are incredibly
nutritious with whole grains. They are
great for a ‘grab-and-go’ snack,
breakfast, or just a treat. They are
vegan, gluten, and soy free.
Find them in the farm store in
individually wrapped sizes (like above) or 8 oz bags.
Microgreen of the Week
We have been weeding away this week to
make sure our plants are getting as much
water and sunlight that they need to grow!
This week, we also harvested leeks,
turnips, beets, radish, and kohlrabi for the
first time. We are excited to share these
new vegetables with you and can’t wait for even more.
Don’t forget to stop in the Farm Store for
eggs, baked goods, meat, and your own
“Microgreens Mini Grow Kit”!
Our microgreen of the week is Classy
Classic. Classy Classic is a mix of
broccoli, kale, kohlrabi, and red & green
cabbage. This mix is a great source of
vitamins like A, B, C, E, K and many other antioxidants.
