Weekly Availability List

Produce List for Tuesday Sept 26th

Posted by Natalie Kujala :: Friday, September 22 :: 12:49pm

Thank you to everyone for being so patient while we worked out the kinks of our new phone system, and attemped to work out some of the old kinks of our software system. Sometimes it can be a challenge working in a remote area, but I’ll tell you what, you can’t beat the view. Even though my drive in to the office is long, I never tire of the scenery. Rolling mountains, wooded lanes, and prosperous fields. My drive is often interrupted by sudden stops for snakes, turtles, and chickens, but I’ll take that over traffic any day.    

Again, here’s our quick guide of phone extenstion numbers:  Taylor: 101, Natalie: 102, Shelly: 103, Emily: 104, Robin: 105, Teresa: 107, Norma: 108  

HIGHLIGHTS/LOWLIGHTS:  

MUSHROOMS: Okay I’ll start with the lowlight so we can end on a high note. We will have very limited numbers of mushrooms for Tuesday delivery. The farm unfortunately experienced shortages on their end. We should be back on track with these later in the week.  

ASIAN PEARS: I’m giving another shout out to Asian pears as our grower is having an awesome year, and these are one of my mom’s favorite treats. Asian pears offer a crisp, juicy, melon-like flavor, and pair great with arugula (which we also have in volume).    

BROCCOLI: Holy broccoli explosion! Throughout the week we were receiving calls from growers increasing their broccoli projections. One grower who initially offered 6 cases ended up sending us 50! Luckily our customers were ready for broccoli. Whew!  

SUMMER SQUASH: Just when we all thought it was time to switch over to our fall wardrobes and recipes, summer returned, and brought its squashes along with it. Ever since Emily mentioned ratatouille, I’ve been on a kick making crockpot variations of this classic dish. We have all winter to try our hand with those storage crops, but limited time to work those last summer veggies into our favorite recipes.    

NON-ORGANIC, ALL NATURAL LOCAL CHICKEN EGGS: AVAILABLE IN MEDIUM, LARGE AND EXTRA-LARGE, 15 DOZEN BULK. PLEASE CALL TIM DERSTINE AT HARES VALLEY GROWERS AT 814 448 2784 FOR GREAT EGG PRICES.
