Although the chickens have slowed down for the winter, our ducks are going strong. Check out our duck eggs in the CSA store. They are similar size to a large chicken egg. They have a hard shell and a thicker membrane making it a little more difficult to crack. I think they are great for cooking too. They are really delicious and I didn’t really notice a difference in taste vs. a chicken egg. Available for a limited time in our store. We are looking forward to ramping up the season for our chickens and adding a new flock come spring time.
We are also patiently awaiting a huge variety of fruit trees that will be planted this year. A very sweet future is ahead. Hoping this winter bounty will fill your fridge and warm your hearts as you eat it.

Week of January 8th

Happy New Year and a new decade. This year I’m working to eliminate as much plastic as possible in my life. That means over the next month we will be phasing out plastic bags and replacing them with paper when possible with our CSA program. We also always ask that you return egg cartons and green baskets if available, but we can not accept plastic clam shells (these usually hold berries) or twist ties for reuse. It’s my goal to get to as little waste as possible with our CSA program. Keep in mind that what goes on behind the scenes is saving as well. ALL the boxes we use to pick your produce in get reused and we only purchase minimally packed produce when outsourcing. The amount of plastic accumulated on the planet is beyond concerning and I hope this can be an outlet for those with the same concerns.
With less and more fragile packaging we ask that you pick up your CSA box with both hands in order to avoid produce from rolling around.
