We are happy to have local migrogreens in our box this week. Let us know what you think! Tiny microgreens are packed with huge amounts of nutrients. They are harvested about 5 days after they sprout and can contain up to 40x the amount of nutrients as the mature plants. I think the smooth creaminess of avocados naturally compliment the tiny, flavorful sprouts. All the healthy fats in avocados help distribute the nutrients to your body. And combined they really can help make the perfect meal. Never used microgreens before? Just add the anywhere you could use a little crunch. Top savory dishes and slip them into sandwiches for extra boost of health.

We are adding some extra strawberries to the box this week because some beets were left out two weeks ago. Enjoy!!

The windy weather up here in Buellton finally got the better of me. I got a pretty bad sinus related cold and it took me down yesterday. This is why your post is coming so late. We are so close to having so many tomatoes on the farm I can taste it. Lots of delicious variety on the horizon, but we came up a little short this week. So we are filling the box with fruit and enjoying every bite.
No apples today as previously planned. More strawberries instead!!

Week of May 3rd

Happy May! Time is a thief. I have no idea where it went :) Hope you had a great weekend. Just wanted to say THANK YOU for supporting the farm, local & organic produce and our CSA program. We appreciate it so much. Check out the store if you need some fresh out of the oven bread or our free roaming eggs. I love using Turkey eggs for my baby boy. They contain 50% more calories and healthy cholesterol. My little guy is growing quick so it’s a great source of protein for him.
