SUMMER IS AROUND THE CORNER, COME GET SOME BEAUTIFUL ANNUALS
Annuals blooming in House #3


A reminder when shopping in person at the farm - wear a face covering for compliance with the law, we are a public place!

Our grounds are open, however, there is a limit of (6) persons at a time in our large greenhouse #3 for vegetable plants, herbs, tropicals, pond plants, and annuals. 

Plant pricing is posted in multiple locations in and around our plant display areas. If you have questions, a staff member will be happy to assist you.

When checking out at the farm, please form a single line, following marked distancing stripes on the ground, on the Cecilton side of the farmstand.  We'll call you in the building, one at a time once we have your order entered and are ready for payment.  That way no one person will have to be inside any longer than necessary.  On mild days, our doors are open.  Please do not enter the farmstand until you are called in to make payment. Thank you for helping us to keep everyone safe!
                
Pre-order/pre-pay for this week's markets/farm pickups.  If you've placed an order to pickup at the farm in Cecilton, please come on Thursday (or later) to pickup, as Wednesday is our harvest/pack day and your order will not be ready.  Regular CSA pickups start Wednesdays and continue through the week.

Our online "store" is now open (each Monday morning), cutoff time for ordering is each  Tuesday at 5pm (when the "store" will indicate "SOLD OUT")

We'll have a large selection of items at each market for you to select from, if you choose not to pre-order.  At all markets you'll experience a safe environment, with all vendors following safety guidelines.  

At the area Farmers' Markets, our staff will assist you by:

* Selecting prepackaged items for you from secure coolers
* Placing them in our bag or in your own bag a safe distance from our table front
* Not allowing other customers to touch any items
* Routinely washing their hands
* Maintaining customer distancing from each other
* Sanitizing surfaces as necessary
* Taking your contactless credit card payment 
* Accepting contactless exact cash

How To Cook Radish Greens (Paleo, Vegan, AIP, Keto)

Amanda Torres @ TheCuriousCoconut.com
Published  04/22/2018
Did you know that a) radishes taste amazing cooked and b) that you can eat the greens? Stretch your food dollars further by eating the whole plant. You'll enjoy a significant nutrition boost from eating the greens, too, as their nutritional value far exceeds that of the roots!INGREDIENTS
  • 1 bunch of radishes with greens (about 8 to 10 radishes with greens)
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, ghee, or butter (my fave my fave EVOO)
  • heaping 1/4 tsp of dried thyme or rosemary
  • 1 tsp minced/pressed garlic (from about 2 big cloves)
  • 1/2 tsp unrefined salt (my favorite)
  • 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Separate each radish root from it's greens and make 2 piles. Wash the roots well under running water, scrubbing to remove any soil. Fill a bowl with water and dip the greens to clean.
  2. Remove the root tip from each radish and discard (composting is great!) Slice each root in half from root tip to top, then cut into thin half circles. Slice the greens into thin strips about 1/4-1/2 inch wide (you don't have to be precise here).
  3. Heat the EVOO in a large frying pan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Sautee the roots for 6-8 minutes or until they begin to turn translucent and become soft. Add the thyme and garlic and cook 1-2 mins more.
  5. Next add the chopped greens and cook until they are wilted down, about 1-2 minutes more.
  6. Serve as a side dish to any meal. This makes an especially tasty breakfast side dish!
