Weekly Availability List

Produce List for Tuesday Oct. 17th

Posted by Natalie Kujala :: Friday, October 13 :: 1:28pm

Fall is upon us, and so are multitudes of produce. Baby greens, bunched kales, sweet potatoes, beets, carrots, and winter squashes- to name a few- are aplenty. We can offer flexible pricing for many items, especially with volume orders. I also wanted to send out a reminder that we can do bins of winter squashes such as butternuts (#1 and #2 quality), pie pumpkins, Long Island cheese squash, Thelma Sanders, acorn squash, and honeynuts. Please talk to me (Natalie) for bin pricing, and keep in mind we need a few days notice before delivery. Thank you to all of our customers for supporting our cooperative, and our family farms.  

HIGHLIGHTS:  

ROMANESCO CAULIFLOWER: I was introduced to Romanesco cauliflower during my apprenticeship at New Morning Farm by TOG’s very own current GM- Emily. I remember thinking the heads all looked like little medieval castles tucked away in the field. Emily also taught me what I think is the best way to enjoy this architecturally unique veggie- simply chopped and lined on a baking sheet, drizzled with olive oil, and sprinkled with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika- bake at 450⁰ and voilà!    

COLLARD GREENS: Whether prepared with bacon, stuffed with red beans and rice, or added to soups and stews, collard greens add a hearty boost of nutrients to any meal. Fall is the perfect time to test your culinary skills and creativity with collard greens.  

THELMA SANDERS SQUASH: This is a wonderful, cream colored, heirloom acorn-type winter squash. A member of the Seed Savers Exchange received these seeds from a Thelma Sanders, in Adair County Missouri, in the early 1980s. He then shared them in the SSE group, where this variety of winter squash became very popular. They are supposedly better than a sweet potato!  

BUTTERNUT SQUASH: Butternut squash tops my list of favorite veggies. I love how its smooth, creamy flavor pairs so well with spicy seasonings. Though my all-time favorite way to enjoy butternut squash is simply mashed with butter and fresh ginger, I recently made a stew with chickpeas, kale, and various hot peppers. It turned out surprisingly tasty.

GREENS NOTE: Baby and young arugula, baby and young sweet & spicy, baby mixed kale and baby ruby streaks mustard can be packed in 5lb cases for $48/case ($45 for 3+). Please let us know by Friday if you’d like 5lb packs of the arugulas, kale, or mustard. We will have 5lb sweet & spicy available.  

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.
